Let Prayer Connect Your Family

Jordan Phillips of Apollo LTD says, “Prayer is that thing that connects our house.”

The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.

– Psalm 145:18 NIV

As you navigate the currents of your life, you may find yourself in seasons where the shores of home feel distant, where the faces of loved ones are a memory more than a presence. You know the ache of absence, the silent echo of a room once filled with laughter and conversation. Yet, in prayer, you find a bridge across any divide, a sacred place where hearts are united in the presence of God.

You understand that prayer is not confined by walls, not limited by miles. Like a gentle whisper over the waters, your prayers reach beyond the physical, touching the hem of Jesus’ garment expecting to receive His help. You find comfort in knowing that your voice, lifted in earnest supplication or quiet gratitude, is heard by a God who transcends time and space.

Let prayer be the bridge across any divide, a sacred place where hearts are united in the presence of God.

Whether you’re a parent guiding your child through their first prayers, a spouse longing for the warmth of a hand to hold, or a friend standing in the gap for another, your prayers knit you closer to the ones you love. You’re laying down the cobblestones of a path walked in faith, creating a legacy not just of words, but of relationship—a living dialogue with the Creator who designed you for connection.

As you bow your head tonight, perhaps over a screen that brings the familiar smile of a child into view, or in the silence of a room where memories linger, know that this act of prayer is a powerful affirmation of God’s promises. It’s in these honest moments that you teach the most profound lessons of faith—not through grand gestures, but through the steadfast commitment to seek God’s face, no matter where you are.

Let this be your heart’s cry and your soul’s melody, a song of prayer that rises with each dawn and settles with the twilight. Embrace the beauty of a faith that binds, a hope that travels, and a love that endures through every trial and triumph.

Today’s One Thing

Say aloud: “I am bound to my loved ones through the power of prayer, a sacred cord that cannot be broken by distance. My heart is open, my spirit is willing, and my life is a testament to the God who hears, who cares, and who keeps us united in His boundless love.”
