“The family that prays together, stays together.” – Fr. Patrick Peyton
Family prayer should be the center of our lives as Catholics, but often parents find it challenging. Praying consistently with our kids is not our family’s strength, so of course, that’s why we wanted to address it! You need to find a type of prayer that works for your family and don’t worry about how “well” you all pray. The Lord just wants to hear from you–daily!–and your children need to see your example (especially they need to see you dads!). Our entire lives need to be submitted to the Lord, knowing that all we have is from Him.
