Today we will be dealing with 5 family prayer points for 2023. The importance of a family cannot be overemphasized. The family is an entity that God derives so much pleasure from. The scripture said in the book of Genesis 2:24 That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh. One flesh in this context means one body. They are no longer two but one. And even when they start having children, they are still one. The concept of family began with the Holy Trinity, God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, all three but one. And that’s why God wants to replicate this concept on earth too through family. 

A family must not fail in its duty. They are an integral part of God’s plan to multiply the earth. They are to bring forth children and train them in the way of the Lord. When the family fails, trouble is released into society. There are several reasons why a family can fail, and one of such reasons is disunity. The primary essence of a family is to teach us the concept of togetherness, unity as portrayed by the Holy Trinity. And when the family is strongly United, it becomes next to impossible for the enemy to infiltrate them. To ensure the continued stability of the family, prayer is needed. Every member of the family must ensure that they invest tangible time in praying for the family.  

Importance of Family Prayer

There are several importance of family prayer. Let’s quickly highlight some of them in the next few paragraphs. 

Family Prayer Create Bond Among Family Members

If your family has been suffering from the lack of unity, it is because you have not cultivated the habit of praying together. When men hold hands to pray, it conforms them to a level of agreement. The scripture said in the book of Amos 3:3 Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction? Praying together helps to intensify the relationship among family members not only physically but spiritually. 

It Makes Faith The Center of Attraction 

When families pray together and they expose their young one to a life of prayer from the early stage, it helps build their faith in Christ Jesus. First, praying together requires a level of dedication and commitment from every member of the family. When praying, worry, anxiety and pain is set aside and focus is placed on God. This helps you to prioritize your faith and that of every member of the family. 

It Teaches Everyone To Always Turn To God

The scripture said train up a child in the way he should go so that when he’s grown, he will not depart from it. Family prayer helps train up a child in a way that they will turn to God at every slight feeling of discomfort. A family that prays together all the time has fostered the habit of praying into its members. Even when they are not with family, the habit of always turning to God will still be in them regardless.

Family Prayer Teaches Forgiveness
Family prayer doesn’t only build unity, it also opens the heart of every member to forgiveness. The mere acceptance that God is the greatest and He alone is worthy of our praise and worship breaks us. It makes us humble ourselves in total submission to God. And this makes it easier for us to let go of our anger towards another person within or outside the family.
