Heavenly Father loves us and wants our families to be strong and live righteously. He has given us guidance to help us have Christ-centered homes: “Organize yourselves; prepare every needful thing; and establish a house, even a house of prayer, a house of fasting, a house of faith, a house of learning, a house of glory, a house of order, a house of God” (D&C 88:119).
Family prayer is essential to building strong families. When families speak regularly with Heavenly Father, they grow closer to Him and to each other. Prayer helps families focus on the most important things in life as family members express gratitude for their blessings and each other and evaluate their family’s needs.
Great blessings are given to families who gather together each morning and evening for family prayer. Children will learn to pray to their Heavenly Father. Even small children can take their turn, with parents giving help if needed. Through family prayer, parents can teach the principles of faith, humility, and love. Family prayer unites family members, strengthens faith, and helps families gain answers to their prayers.
Heavenly Father loves us and wants our families to be strong and live righteously. Praying together as a family is a way to grow closer to our Father in Heaven and to each other. We are able to thank Heavenly Father for our many blessings and ask for His guidance in strengthening our family.
