Bowing with Meekness in Our Prayers

Our prophets have admonished us repeatedly to make family prayer a
regular part of our daily worship. President John Taylor asked the

Do you have prayers in your family?...

And when you do, do you go through the operation like
the guiding of a piece of machinery, or do you bow in meekness and with a
sincere desire to seek the blessing of God upon you and your household?
That is the way that we ought to do, and cultivate a spirit of devotion and
trust in God, dedicating ourselves to him, and seeking his blessings.
(Journal of Discourses, 20:118.)
