Prayer for Family
How often should I pray for my family? Should I pray for myself or them? What kind of prayers should I say?
Prayer has always played a significant role in our lives. The Bible says that God wants us to pray for each other (James 5:16). There are also several benefits to praying. For example, prayer helps strengthen relationships between family members.
Family prayers are important because they remind us to take time out from our busy schedules to connect with each other. Prayers for ourselves can help us focus on our spiritual well-being. Prayers for others can encourage them to change their behavior.
We will print and place your prayer request on the Stone of Anointing; the place where Christ’ body was laid down after being removed from the crucifix and prepared for burial.
1 Timothy 3:4
