The family that prays together .... Stays together!
The family that prays together indeed stays together. This is so very true. Prayer is so very powerful and can be so very enlightening. It is wonderful for a family to pray together. It can bring all of us closer together as we experience real brotherhood and real fellowship. There is nothing better to share than prayer. Absolutely nothing. It could be for grace before a meal or for strength for a challenge or disease or for the loss of a loved one or even just a prayer of thank you to our Lord for all of His goodness, provisions and many blessings. They are so very evident in our lives. It is wonderful to share the love of God. Prayer can serve to bring people together when we praise and honor our Lord. We should pray as often as we can and certainly talk to God as often as we can. Also, we should be specific when we pray. We are after all His children who He loves. Love Him and honor Him and pray to our incredible and compassionate God. He alone is worthy. Prayer together is an amazing part of fellowship. It brings people closer and I believe also makes us more humble. When you pray together it establishes a foundation in God and in faith. What could be more beautiful than that? It says in the bible that it is good to give thanks and praise and pay our Lord homage. He is so very good to us. Jesus says if you ask anything in My name it shall be granted. He can and does make all of our wishes, hopes and dreams come true. Talk to Him often. Submit to Him completely and it will be the best decision you ever make in your life. The very at decision. Here are some verses on prayer:
Matthew 18:20 Where two or three are gathered in my name I am there in the midst of them.
Philippians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Acts 1:14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.
Romans 12:12 Rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.
1 Thessalonians 5:16 Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, with everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1 John 5:14 Now this is the confidence we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
God bless always.
