The couple that prays together…
A new study released today finds that praying and attending worship services together leads to stronger relationships.
I’ve often heard the refrain, “The family that prays together stays together” and wondered if there was any evidence for this (I am a reporter, after all).
The study appears in the August issue of the Journal of Marriage and Family. I’d love to explore this more for a local story. So please get in touch if you:
- Pray regularly as a couple
- Never pray as a couple
- Attend worship services together
- One of you is devout and the other isn’t
- Disagree on religion
