“We need the sanctifying influence which comes from devotion in the home–prayer as a family.”
“The differences and irritations of the day melt away as families approach the throne of heaven together. Unity increases. The ties of love and affection are re-enforced and the peace of heaven enters.”
A poem that President Benson memorized as a young boy:
I know not by what methods rare,But this I know, God answers prayer.I know that He has given His Word,Which tells me prayer is always heard,And will be answered, soon or late.And so I pray and calmly wait.I know not if the blessing soughtWill come in just the way I thought;But leave my prayers with Him alone,Whose will is wiser than my own,Assured that He will grant my quest,Or send some answer far more blest.
