Because we receive every day family-mercies from the hand of God.
You should pray to God daily in your families, because there are sins committed every day in your families.
You should pray in your families daily unto God, because you have many daily family-wants, which none can supply but God.
You should pray in your families daily because of your families’ daily employments and labors.
You should pray to God in your families daily, because you are all every day liable to temptations.
You should pray in your families daily because all in your families are liable to daily hazards, casualties, and afflictions.
You must pray to God in your families daily, or the very Heathen will rise up against you Christians and condemn you.
