Carol and I received this note from friends we had sent a Christmas card to --
Thanks for your Christmas card …
This year Kathy and I are taking the Christmas cards we received and pulling one out each week and praying for that individual or family.Yours was the 5th one selected, so I just wanted to let you know that we have been praying for you thisweek (January 30 – February 5).Phil, we have been praying for your ministry, alongwith future teaching and preaching opportunities. We have lifted up your financial needs. Carol, we have been praying for your physical health. We have asked our Lord to bless your marriage in some special way in the coming year. And, recognizing the joy of being grandparents ourselves, we have been praying for your grandchildren, and their coming to faith.
Blessings and love,Rande & Kathy

Hey, it's Michael from the Rocket Company, and it's the Second Day of Christmas.
Matthew 1:20-24 An Angel appeared to Joseph and instructed him. That is what prayer is all about....While Jesus thought about these things......pondering....contemplating.
Prayer is very important to our dwindling congregation. Today we had a new member born to a young couple who are members of the church...Praise the Lord. And we all prayed for that baby and the mother who did well.
I gave a journey...Jesus Calling to my daughter in law and our oldest daughter for Christmas....neither are attending a church and do not serve the Lord as we know Him.
My husband I and hem our days in with devotion and prayer.
Pray is an integral part of my life. I am the prayer partner of many of my pastors of the past and those now.
What is Your Response to the Birth of Jesus?
After the angels announced the birth of Jesus to the shepherds, they ran to Bethlehem and found Mary and Joseph and the baby was lying in a manger.
Now the Christmas celebrations are over, the tree will come down soon, the decorations put away for another year.
What is your response to the birth of Jesus Christ?
Don’t pack Jesus away with the Christmas ornaments until next Christmas.
My prayer is that your response is to grow in your spiritual life so you will be able to be an even greater godly influence in the lives of your grandchildren in 2014.

Thank you, Lillian Penner. I have begun following you your blog and comments, Praying Grandparent. I just received your book, which I ordered for my sister-in-law and myself. My most urgent ongoing prayer is for my children to follow God and to take their children to church. 30+ years ago, my husband and I decided that perhaps we should take our children to church as, "There might be something moral or ethical that we would miss teaching them." !!! Little did we know!!! My hope for my children and grandchildren is based in what God has done for me, to me, and through me - and how He goes on blessing me with the reality of Himself. I see Him move in the lives of others and know I pray in His will, also that He does not force us to Himself. My hope lives and I am grateful, loving my Lord more each day, serving Him as I seek to hear Him, see Him, follow Him. Your published words are a help to me, and I receive the prayer you pray above. Shalom ... Molly
Thank you for your most encouraging comments. I am so happy to hear that that book and blogs have been meaningful to you. There really is a need for pray for our grandchildren and future generations, especially as they are growing up in such a post-Christian culture.
I would appreciate your prayers for the grandparenting ministry that I will be guided by the Holy Spirit and that the hearts of grandparents will be challenged to intentionally pray for their grandchildren.
May God bless you as you share Jesus love and pray for your grandchildren. My pastor taught us this morning that "all things are possible with God." I need to remember that since I have one son and his family that are unchurched.
