Honestly, there is no true definition of long prayers or short family prayers. We pray as the spirit lead. However, for me personally, there are moments when muttering short prayers for my family gives me relief. While working, resting, walking or engaged in something. In all sincerity, a short prayer for my family extends beyond meals and bedtime.

Someone once said that it is more important to know how to pray than to have a degree from a university. There are many things that are important in this life. A good education is important. Money is important. A good marriage is important. But, a good prayer life is most important!

On this page, I have included different prayer points ranging from a confession of sin, to petitions for the supply of our needs. If you think you are too busy to pray, then you are deceiving yourself. If you do not pray, it is because you do not want to pray.

Below are the following reasons short family prayers are important;
