Ideas for Prayer During Family Worship in Training the Children on How to Pray

Ideas for Prayer During Family Worship in Training the Children on How to Pray Geoffrey R. Kirkland Christ Fellowship Bible Church Family worship may be defined as the regular coming together of a family to worship God in song, in reading the Word, and in prayer.
