Prayer With My Family

O My Soul:

I have never sweat blood during prayer but leading my wife and children in prayer comes close.

It is something I know I should do but I can not count the ways that delay, interfere, and eventually bring family prayer to an end.

Here are a few things I have done to make it a routine:

1.  8:00 a.m. is family prayer time.  It helps that the two youngest children are not homeschooled this year and need to be at the elementary school at 8:30.  So at 8:00 we all sit in the living room.

2. I follow a very, very simple order of service:

Invocation, Psalm, Apostles' Creed, Prayer Requests, Lord's Prayer, Blessing.

And then we go about the rest of our day.

Hope in Christ &
God Bless You,
