Family Prayer Made Easy
A Practical Guide For Praying Together
Teresa J. Herbic
Parents and children are so busy, rushing from one activity to another. Rarely do they pause to spend time together in prayer. The authors have written a book to help those who need a little guidance and encouragement in the area of family prayer. The book begins with a contract for the family to sign that says they will be committed to prayer. Each chapter is written as a devotional and covers a different topic that the family can focus on during prayer. The end of the chapter has questions and thoughts for discussion followed by some prayers that can be used. It ends with some scriptures and activities that can put the prayers in action.
I love the concept of this book. The importance of prayer within families is huge. The thoughts and stories that the author shared in the devotionals were entertaining and fit well with the theme. I especially liked the activities and thoughts to put those prayers into action. I've been praying for a long time, so the written out prayers weren't helpful for me. But I can see them being useful for a new Christian or someone who isn't comfortable with family prayer.
I received this book from Book Club Network. All thoughts expressed are my honest opinion.
