How do you pray with your family each day, if you do? Do you and your spouse pray together? When, where, and what do you pray (rosary, etc.)?
I’m a single mom…I pray with my daughter every night at bedtime.
My dh and I pray an approved version of Morning and Evening Prayer for lay people and a rosary if we have to be traveling, as well as a prayer before eating, even if we are at a restaurant.
It may not seem like much, but just being faithfulness to a schedule of prayer is more important than how many prayers we say. It does make a difference.
My husband and I generally pray an Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be together at bedtime, and we pray together at the Mary shrine after Mass.
I pray in the morning…and at night and every chance in between I can get. I pray on the bus to work, on the bus home from work and many times AT work. I pray the rosary every Saturday at my BF’s church, and in the evening when I go to Mass. I attend the Miraculous Medal novena on Mondays and adoration Monday mornings. I really should try praying more huh?
Sadly, my active prayer life has been reduced to family prayer at bedtime and at meals. The effort is there but I am a weak soul. :o I used to pray so much more…but I am working on it.
Honestly sometimes all I have in me is a thank you to the Lord for a hot shower.
