Praying Together

A quote from a friend’s website, discussing how daily family worship is a powerful weapon against the forces of darkness:

“. . . Since then, we’ve been doing Vespers every night, and have added Matins in the mornings, and it has helped a lot. Whenever any of us start noticing the tensions rising, we simply start singing praise songs or parts of the liturgy, regardless of what time of day it is. Worshiping together brings us together and dispels any negativity. It’s better than a family counseling session.”
