It is of great significance if there is a person who truly prays in a family. Prayer attracts God’s Grace and all the members of the family feel it, even those whose hearts have grown cold. Pray always.
+ Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica
Sometimes we pray for our family, but nothing seems to change. Relationships stay broken and problems persist. It can be a struggle to keep praying when nothing seems to come of it.
Keep praying, even if no one else in your family is praying. By your prayers you’re bringing God’s grace into your family and it does affect everyone, even when their hearts seem cold. Through His grace, like waves on a beach our persistent prayers have a gentle impact on others, smoothing even the hardest, most jagged rock.
Lord, help me to keep praying for my family. Help me to trust and wait for Your perfect timing, knowing that You hear all our prayers.
