Praying with family is not something that comes easily to most people. In fact, a recent study of young Catholic families found that seventy-six percent of parents pray mostly as individuals rather than with family. This is particularly striking when paired with the finding that eighty-five percent of Catholic parents are more likely to watch television with their family while only fifteen percent are more likely to watch alone. In short, families are far more likely to watch television together than they are to pray together.
But there is good reason to step outside your comfort zone when it comes to prayer, particularly during this period of engagement before your wedding.
