Family Prayer


Early in the morning
Our family kneels to pray.
We ask the Lord to help us
Throughout the coming day.
I think of all the prophets
Who knelt when they were young
And asked the Lord for blessings
With simple, faithful tongue.
And families like Lehi’s,
Who had faith and traveled far,
Prayed for God’s direction
And were heard, just as we are.
My family prays together
For blessings great and small
Because our Savior listens
And answers when we call.
