On The Road To Perfection
Episode 121: Being a Family of Prayer

In the past, Beth and Kristofer have talked about how to do family prayer. In this episode, they discuss how to be a family of prayer. They answer how long it takes to “get there” and share some of what it takes, without getting into tactics or strategies or specific practices. Being a family of prayer is a way of life, not a set of check boxes! With that in mind, they discuss why it is important to be closer to God and our family, what it means to be a harmonious family, and how to be it.

Beth and Kristofer discuss what we have to do in order to be a prayerful family, and how we need to be intentional in our everyday decisions in order to maintain being just that. They go into why it is important to be intentional in how we are being the prayerful family at home and outside of it.
