It’s true. The more you pray and teach your children to pray, the smoother things will go for you and your family. My husband might tell you otherwise, but I do find it hard to keep track of our weekly schedule. You know: school, extra curricular activities, grocery shopping, tidying up, paying bills, remembering appointments and so on. Fortunately, in our house we all pitch in. No one person does everything. But we do have a little secret that helps our day run more smoothly. Prayer. Doesn’t have to be a long-winded prayer, just asking our Heavenly Father for guidance, assistance, encouragement, and mercy is all it takes.
