Field Guide for Family Prayer is a field guide that offers prayers for everyday, ordinary families. It was written as a simple guide containing tools for prayer and encouragement to find moments throughout the day to pray together as a family. These prayers have been tested in homes, around family tables, in living rooms, and in the evenings in children’s rooms as we gather together.
While some of these prayers are original, many have been adapted from several different sources, especially the Book of Common Prayer. Some are very old, while others are new. Field Guide for Family Prayer is written to be a helpful guide for families that are looking for ways to integrate their faith in the home by praying with their children. You can use these prayers at your own pace and adapt them to best suit your family and the age of your children.
As you begin, we encourage you to make time and set aside places for prayer in your routine. Search for moments throughout the day that fit into your family rhythms. Consistency is key, as it will become part of your day that your family will look forward to. Make space in your home for prayer. Gather around the table, share a meal, and make time for each other. May your home become a house of prayer.
