My dearly beloved,
“A house without prayer is a house without a roof.” It is very important that we seek the Lord as a family and with oneness of mind. Today, there is no prayer in 90% of the families. People give more importance to their jobs, they set out in the morning without prayer and as a result, they face utter chaos in their work spot!
No unity or oneness of mind in the family life! The children’s lives are thoroughly spoiled. Finally, they struggle not knowing what to do. Don’t we read in the Bible that Joshua was godly and was diligent in seeking the Lord, as a family? So, every morning, begin your work with a prayer personally and as a family. Those who fail to do this will not be able to enjoy the peace and joy of the Lord in their family.
By the immense grace of God, from the very first day of our marriage, Bro. D.G.S. Dhinakaran and I followed this practice in our life. We used to pray as a family at 6 O’clock in the morning and sing and praise God. Then the Lord will come in our midst. We would read the Bible, meditate on it and share its goodness. After that, we would start praying to the Lord sincerely. Then the Lord will come. Sometimes, He will speak to us. Since Bro. D.G.S. Dhinakaran was gifted with the gift of prophecy, he would tell us the Lord’s revelations.
Today, the Lord has given my son Paul Dhinakaran the same grace. Do you know how the time of our family prayer is! It is wonderful!
My dear one, please do not give priority to your job and neglect this experience of enjoying divine joy. It is very important that you build your personal as well as family life on the Lord Jesus Christ. When you thus build, He Himself will be the foundation of your home. Be more watchful and diligent to build up your spiritual life in the Lord as a family. Spend more time in reading the Bible and praying to the Lord with a sincere heart. Then your family or your personal life shall surely be built in the Lord.
Loving heavenly Father, I desire to love You wholeheartedly and seek You earnestly. I want to lead a godly life, pleasing You in everything I do. Please help me to experience Your matchless love. Let Your love uphold me at all times. In Jesus’ matchless name I pray. Amen.
