The directory for family-worship

In 1647 the Church of Scotland approved “The Directory for Family Worship” which encouraged daily quiet times for individuals and families. For years there has been a lot of devotional material published for individuals but relatively little for families.

You can find a lot of devotional material at a Faith Mission Bookshop. The good book website has resources for family worship with preschool children and older children as well as videos of parents with practical tips.

We recommend teaching your family this wording of the Lord’s prayer:-

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
Amen.

We recommend the New International Reader’s Version(NIrV) as a first full Bible for your child.
