Today’s families are busy. Every morning, parents and kids head out for a day full of school, work, sports, music lessons, church activities, and everything else. They return home, often tuning into television, computers, and phones—and tuning each other out. But what would happen if we, as families, pressed “pause” in the middle of packed schedules to gather and pray? Teresa Herbic believes anything can happen when families pray together.
Family Prayer Made Easy jump-starts your family prayer time with ten focused devotions. Together, your family can seek God in action-packed, Spirit-driven prayers for each other, for friends, for the community, and more. After prayer comes an optional faith-focused activity, such as writing cards for hospital patients or crafting a thanksgiving jar for the family.
Including Scriptures on prayer, classic children’s prayers, 100 more interactive ideas for bringing prayer into busy family life, and sample prayers for holidays and special occasions, this book will guide your family into powerful, consistent, loving prayer—with resources you’ll return to time and time again.
