Did You Think To?

When the war against terrorism was declared, and we began by fighting against those who declared this  conflict as "jihad" or a "holy war," one of my first thoughts was the advantage our adversaries have. They are on their knees praying five times a day.

This morning, I ran across this....

"There is great power in loving, consistent, fervent family prayer. Don't deny your families this blessing. Don't allow the strength that comes from family prayer to slip away from you and your loved ones through neglect."
--John H. Groberg, "The Power of Family Prayer," Ensign, May 1982, 52

I am firmly of the mind that those who have the greater link with heaven and thus the creator of this world will have tapped into the power necessary to win any war.

As I pondered John Groberg's quote, I got to thinking, it doesn't matter if you're a member of the LDS faith or any other faith for that matter. If every family, every father, every mother, every child would undertake to have a family prayer, at least once a day, it would mean amazing things for our society and toward our success in our current conflicts--at home and abroad.

So, I have to ask, are you having a family prayer every day? If you don't know how to pray, here's a little help for you get started. It just takes moments, but it can change your life. Give it a shot. What do you have to lose? But more importantly, what do you have to gain?
