PRAYER

President Kimball said: "The church urges that there be a family prayer every night and every morning. It is kneeling in prayer with all or as many members of the family present as possible. Many have found the most effective time is at breakfast and at the dinner table. Then it is least difficult to get the family members together. These prayers need not be long, especially if little children are on their knees. All of the members of the family, including little ones, should have an opportunity to be mouth in the prayer, in turn."
