- Keep a regular routine of prayer for your children. Good times to pray together are those times you do something regularly e.g. eating together, going to bed or washing your hands! Or light a candle and pray together. This could include praying the same family prayer at the same time every day - it’s completely up to you!
- Read a bible story to your children at bed-time or watch one online with them during the day.
- In the present situation it can be difficult adjusting to not seeing family and friends in person, however, you can still pray for them together daily. Why not send them a message (via email or post) or call them to let them know that you are thinking and praying for them at a certain time?
- Choose one of the family Fun prayer ideas and perhaps choose an activity a day to do as a family - Bright prayer ideas for families at home!
- Listen to a podcast together. For example, you can click here to listen to our Family Prayer Adventure podcasts from last year - https://www.thykingdomcome.global/resources/digital-family-prayer-adventure-map
