“…Dear children, let every family be active in prayer for I wish that the fruits in the family be seen one day…”

Jakov, one of the six Medjugorje visionaries, shared some thoughts on family prayer during one of his talks to the pilgrims here in Medjugorje, in April 2014:

“Our Lady has been inviting us to pray in our own families, to place God in the first place in our families. Our Lady said that nothing can unite your family more than the prayers said together. We have to find time for prayer in our families. We have to be an example to our children. We have to pray with our children. I’m also a father, and I have three children. I accepted each one of my children as a gift from God, but I also understood that they are my responsibility. I often remember the words of the late Father Slavko, when he said, you parents, you parents are those who have to give roots to your children when they are small. He added, even one day if they distance themselves from God, they will return, they will come back because of that little bit that you gave them when they were small, will forever remain in their hearts. What is the most beautiful thing for a family is to see when your child is praying and that your child is happy praying. When you as a parent did not have to force them to pray, but they come to you and say when will we pray, shall we pray. Everyday, when I pray with my family, I feel that amazing joy because in those moments you can feel the unity of the family.”
