Your family is the first prayer group. Praying wife and husband for their Family has a tremendous power as pointed out in our title.
Power of Praying wife and husband for their family
The result of this prayer should also be the changed attitude, relationship of parents to their children. You have to understand that as a parent, you are an example to your children in everything, also in prayer.
If the children are not praying, we find the reason for this in the parents, because they are not an example to them. If the parents really with love communicate about Jesus, if they pray with love and go to the mass, Jesus gives them inspiration, and the children will also love Jesus. If, on the contrary, adults always say that they don’t have time and if they act like those who did not recognize Jesus with love, the children will also take the opportunity to free themselves from their parents and their influence when it comes to faith.
To do this, parents you must pray with your children and children with you. As one cannot imagine a family without a conversation, it is impossible to imagine a Christian family without a common prayer. This is important for both parents and children.
Here is a concrete form of group prayer. When the family gets together in the morning and in the evening, you can pray in the manner described below:
- The prayer begins with a song
- The Sign of the Cross (you can use the Holy Water)
- Reading of the passage from the Bible
- Family members talk about the texts read – everyone sees oneself in the mirror of God’s Word
- Family members pray for each other
- Prayer of the Rosary (one, two or more mysteries) – here is our guide on how to pray the Rosary
- Prayer for Blessing
- Short song at the ending
Parents you can choose two options for raising children. To teach them to become associates of God or teach them to live without God. When we observe today’s efforts, we can say that we are in danger of teaching children more about how to feel good, and less about how to be good.
Prayer is one that connects the family and protects it from divorce that happens today shortly after the wedding. If we have God, there are real values in our families. Different problems that we think are severe, become smaller, we can solve them together, in a way that we stand before the Cross and ask God for mercy. Things are solved if we pray together.
What can we recommend to families in need and in problems? Prayer should return in their house. They have to put it in the first place.
May God bless you and share with us what are your examples or prayer in your family.

Dear children, do not forget that this is a grace which many people neither understand nor accept. Therefore, you who have said that you are mine, and seek my help, give all of yourself. First of all, give your love and example in your families. You say that Christmas is a family feast. Therefore, dear children, put God in the first place in your families, so that He may give you peace and may protect you not only from war, but also in peace protect you from every satanic attack.
