5 For thus once the holy women also, whose expectation was in God, adorned themselves, being subject to their own husbands
6 (as Sarah obeys Abraham, calling him "lord," whose children you became), doing good and not fearing dismay in anything.
7 Husbands, likewise, may do it by making a home with them according to knowledge, awarding honor to the feminine as to the weaker vessel, as to those who are also joint enjoyers of the allotment of the varied grace of life, that your prayers be not hindered. (1Peter 3:5-7)

Prayers are hindered when the wife isn't submitted to her husband and husbands adorn themselves by making a home with their wives as though they are partakers of the grace of God on one another's lives.  A home that is out of order with a lack of her submission and a lack of his tenderness hinders the operation of God's grace for both of them and neither of them have adorned their prayers, or their general confession of faith, in that situation.

A lack of adornment of one's prayers brings to mind 1Corinthians 13:1-2 and Malachi 3:10-18.  If one isn't adorning their prayers as 1Peter 3:5-7 says to, then 1Corinthians 13:1-2 calls them nothing, which likely means in Malachi 3 that they're not being distinguished from the wicked, nor getting credit in God's Book of Remembrance -- even if they preach all day and all night!  They got credit for absolutely none of that while their marriage wasn't in the divine order!

They're not adorning themselves in that marriage.  They're not becoming His jewels in that situation.  She's not submitted, therefore he's a dislocated head and all of his meditating in the Word isn't keeping the Blood on their door posts. 

If she's not doing good in their marriage and is fearing dismay, then she's got him off balance, and probably in strife, and while neither of them are being recorded in God's Book of Remembrance, even if they're [both] preaching 24/7, then Satan can steal absolutely all they've got, because their prayers are hindered and as Malachi 3 closes with, we're not able to discern between one who serves God and one who doesn't because the Psalm 112 profile of the rich and righteous that's repeated in Proverbs 31 isn't a reality in their home, because either one of them or both of them are dealing treacherously.

For the idols speak delusion; the diviners envision lies, and tell false dreams; they comfort in vain. Therefore the people wend their way like sheep; they are in trouble because there is no shepherd. Zechariah 10:2


Unless otherwise noted, Scripture quotations are from a solid Center Column Reference Study New King James Version Bible. Where Center Column Reference alternate renderings are preferred, they're not always noted on the site at the time of their usage in a given context, if there's a discrepancy between our quotation and a NKJV that our site's visitors use that's missing the Center Column Reference notes that provide more literal renderings, alternative Hebrew and Greek manuscript variations, etc. Sometimes an "Understood Subject" from the given chapter of the Bible or the particular book of the Bible (perhaps previous chapter) is given attention to while teaching. Reading (and rereading) each book of the Bible [in it's entirety] that's being quoted from in the midst of each subject is [always] greatly encouraged for added clarity! While we're [deeply] supportive of what's understood to be orthodox Christian doctrine on all matters, we're always looking for what God's ADDITIONALLY saying to us in each subject being taught.
