10 MOST Benefits of Family Prayer Time.
1. Family prayer inspires grateful hearts.
Whether you use the acrostic ACTS (adoration, confession, thanksgiving, supplication) or another model, prayer involves praising God and thanking God for blessings. Voicing those thoughts helps families focus on positive reasons to be grateful. Giving thanks helps us realize how much God blesses us. Gratitude makes us feel happier and more optimistic as we share the joys of our days and rejoice in one another’s blessings. We also discover more about what makes each family member feel good. Praising God helps children learn that God is real, powerful, and loving.
