We should not neglect to pray as a family. There is much truth in the saying: "the family that prays together, stays together". Prayer should ever be in our hearts and upon our lips. We should take hold of the opportunities to submit to God in prayer as a family. Our giving thanks to the Father for His goodness, our humble requests for His merciful forgiveness in Christ, our yearnings for His kingdom and power, should be constantly and audibly expressed in family worship.
"Wisdom is justified of her children". So said our Lord (Matt. 11: 19). Let us see that our children receive the attention and care which is our responsibility to give. The greatest blessing we can give them is a belief in God, His Son and His purpose -- not material things as some falsely imagine. Without this, all the joys of parenthood will end in remorse and sorrow.
