“Our Father in Heaven wants us to have strong, loving families. One of the great helps he has given us to achieve this is family prayer. . . .

“Of course, our prayers must be more than words, for as President Marion G. Romney has so clearly stated, ‘The efficacy of our prayers depends on how we care for one another.’ (Ensign, Nov. 1980, p. 93.) Family prayer is fully effective, then, only as we rise from our knees and, with increased love and understanding, take better care of each other.”

John H. Groberg, “The Power of Family Prayer,” Ensign, May 1982, 50
