Scientific studies have shown that prayer has positive effects on both the person and society as a whole. However, our deep spiritual connection to God is what really motivates us to pray, whether alone or with othersand especially as a family. Catholic parents still regularly pray with their children before bed for a number of reasons, including the empirical evidence supporting the practice and the spiritual fortification it provides.
