A family altar is simply having the presence of God abiding and filling your home. It is creating an opportunity for family members to come together and bring their needs, burdens and concerns to God.
Prayer is a must if you are to live a victorious life. God is calling people to build prayer altars in their lives. God is looking for a man who will stand in the gap that evil will not befall men. An understanding of what to expect when you rightly build a prayer altar will energize you to do so.
