Engage In Power Through Praying Together
"Engage In Power Through Praying Together"
By Zach Wood
I’m sure you’ve probably heard this phrase, “The house that prays together stays together”. When we are spending quality time together and doing things with each other and not checking our cell phones or e-mail every 5 minutes, our minds and hearts can then break away and be entirely focused on our family. We should always be striving to engage quality time with our families. Family time is something we often neglect and get too busy to take care of.
Commitment is the key to being engaged in family time, whatever that time may mean. Whether it is going out for an evening together, taking a vacation together or just having a night where you shut off the tv, computers, cell phones and just do something together. This seems to be unheard of now. We have become so dependent on TV, computers and cell phones to “keep us in the loop” that we have really neglected spending quality time with our families.
As a family, it is so vital to spend time together encouraging one another with God’s Word and encouragement.
Do you pray together as a family? Is prayer a vital part of keeping your family together? Do you pray for one another?
I kept this week's writing short and to the point to encourage you to spend time with your family. Maybe you've neglected the time and family bonding you need. I encourage you to pray for your family and spend time praying together.
