As the priest in my home, I am thinking of doing the same – making sure that I am right with God each day and then humbly request the mercy of God for my entire family.
Come to think of it, this could get quite big. We could pray for God to forgive an entire church, community, maybe even a country.
The power of speaking forgiveness into the lives of other people.
I think we may all learn from this – to take heed about ourselves getting involved in sin that might carry consequences to our families. If we have fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, if we do not reprove them, I believe there are consequences not just for me or for any member of my family, but the consequences can effect all of us.
