Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
Today our nation is being attacked like never before educationally, socially, financially, and spiritually. Christianity itself is under assault, and parents and grandparents are involved in a tug of war for the hearts and minds of their children. Our grandchildren are finding it hard to navigate in a world hostile to truth. Satan has launched an aggressive attack on our families, schools, and our nation to desensitize our children to truth and righteousness.Perhaps at no other time in our history is a call to prayer more urgently required than it is today for our grandchildren.
Can grandparents make a difference?
Grandparents can help their grandchildren and their parents navigate the rapid culture shift we are experiencing. The enemy is undermining God’s design for our grandchildren by filling our headlines, and social media feeds with a worldview. However, God has begun a powerful movement to awaken Christian grandparents to make a spiritual impact on the next generation.
God has given grandparents a sacred trust – an opportunity to imprint another generation with His love and faithfulness. Grandparents need to be intentional about the power of prayer to keep the hearts and minds of their grandchildren from falling captive to the enemy’s deception. We are engaged in a spiritual battle that requires prayer as the weapon.
Making September, “A Grandparents’ Month”
Over the last nine years, thousands of grandparents have united in prayer on the National Grandparents Day in September, making it a Day of Prayer for their grandchildren and their parents. Again, Christian Grandparenting Network (CGN) invites you to be a part of this movement to intentionally pray for our grandchildren, our families, and our world making it a Grandparents’ Day of Prayer (GDOP). This year we are declaring the Month of September as “Grandparents’ Month” If it doesn’t fit your schedule to meet with other grandparents or plan an event on September 8 do it any time in September.
We are looking for volunteers who will take the lead to organize an event, calling grandparents to join in prayer on September 8 or throughout September. This event could be in your church, in your home, in a retirement complex, or any meeting location you choose. CGN will provide step-by-step guidelines, resources, and online tools to help you create a successful event that will engage grandparents in prayer for your event. We have received reports from grandparents organizing an event at their church for GDOP because last year's event was very well received.
Join grandparents throughout the world uniting in prayer for their grandchildren and their parents during September,
