Family Prayer

On the Sofa: a weekly story for Primary-aged children

Here are five simple ideas for families to weave prayer and bible readings into the daily routine.

  1. Keep a regular routine of prayer.

    • Good times to pray together are those times you do something regularly, eating together, going to bed or washing your hands!

    • Light a candle and pray the same family prayer at the same time every day.

  2. Read a bible story at bed-time or watch one online as a family during the day.

  3. Whilst lockdown restrictions are easing, it still might not be possible to see all our family and friends in person, however, we can still pray for them together daily.

    • Write them a letter or send them a picture saying that you are thinking and praying for them.

  4. Choose one of the family fun prayer ideas from this website: Bright prayer ideas for families at home!

  5. Listen to a podcast together. For example, Family Prayer Adventure podcasts.
