Help! I know I need to guide my family in family prayer, but it just isn’t happening! I feel like a failure, where can I find encouragement to lead family prayer time. How can I create a prayer space? What are some tips for getting started with an intentional family prayer time? What are some ideas for morning and evening prayer? Why is it important for families to pray together? I’d like to gather families and married couples to for prayer and fellowship, what are some ideas?
There’s a principle found in a number of sources in Church tradition, God doesn’t expect you to pray the way that you want, but only the way that you can. -Tom
When 9 o’clock hits I turn into a witch! …When I had lots of little kids and Tom was gone, I couldn’t do family prayer. Just being KIND to my kids, that was the standard. -Kari
