A Family That Prays Together...

There is an old saying, "A family that prays together stays together."  In my last blog, I spoke about how we needed to have time as a couple to talk about our marriage.  Well, I'm keeping my promise.  My wife and I had a fantastic time this past weekend talking and catching up, encouraging and challenging each other.  During our chat, we also set out some spiritual goals.  We decided that at a certain time each night, we are going to pray.

I feel really good because we have kept to our promise so far.  We have prayed each night (about whatever!) together and it feels good.  It's not a long prayer.  We literally take 5 minutes each night and speak our heart.

I encourage you to take time and try this with your spouse.  If you aren't married, try it with your kids or even a friend.  Do you think you can do it?  I challenge you to try it. And I challenge you to keep me accountable as well.  I am NOS now...
