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.
