what is family worship

Family Worship is an effective yet simple activity. The family meets for prayer with God and communication with each other. The Scriptures are opened and taught by the head of the family. Praise is given to God in song. This is the place where we are best equipped for Time and Eternity. For our good, Christ’s church, and God’s glory.


Statistics tell us:

  • 1 out of every 2 marriages end in divorce
  • Only 1 out of every 42 marriages end in divorce if a couple regularly attends church together
  • Only 1 out of 1,015 marriages end in divorce when a couple regularly reads the Bible and prays together

Consider what happens among married couples who raise their commitment to pray together from “sometimes” to “a lot”:

  • People who say, “My spouse is romantic” goes up 21%
  • People who say, “My spouse delights in me” rose 30%
  • The “quantity and quality of lovemaking” is 20% higher
  • 21% more say they are “trying to make their marriages better!”
  • People who say, “My spouse is my best friend” goes up 17%
  • The fear of divorce among couples who pray together “a lot” is 0%

I agree with Matthew Henry when he says, “they that pray in the family do well; pray and read the Scriptures do better; but pray and read and sing do best of all.”
