Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
Since you received my blog last week, I am praying you have been thinking about how God would have you to influence other grandparents to pray intentionally for their grandchildren in their sphere of influence? I hope you have checked out our website with guidelines, endorsements, and testimonies. Printed Prayer cards are also available for a small charge at https://christiangrandparenting.net/grandparents-day-of-prayer/. It's only about 45 more days until September.
U.S.–ONE OF THE WORST COUNTRIES FOR HUMAN TRAFFICKING—
This is just one of many headlines I have read this week that makes me feel the Grandparents' Day of Prayer is an urgent need. Grandparents need to get on their knees, asking God to protect our dear grandchildren physically, emotionally, and spiritually, especially as they go back to school.
Because of the urgent need at this time, Christian Grandparenting Network (CGN) is partnering with the Legacy Coalition to invite you to be a part of this movement to intentionally pray for our grandchildren, our families, our nation, and our world making it a Grandparents' Month of Prayer.
Planning an event for grandparents during September is a great time to introduce a grandparenting prayer ministry into your church. If it doesn't fit in the schedule at your church to plan an event for grandparents on September 8, you may do it any time in September.
A grandmother in Missouri shared about their Grandparents' Day of Prayer at her church last year. "We had a great time of prayer and reading the scriptures on Sunday. We had around 70 in attendance. We started with a box lunch then kind of followed the outline in the Resource booklet you provided. We had two testimonies of grandmas praying for their grands and how God answered prayer. Then we had the grandfathers read the prayers out of the book, and a grandfather prayed over them and did the same for the grandmothers. We had three different men who read scriptures. Then the pastor led us in a guided prayer time. We finished up by everyone reading the Grandparents Declaration than the Steve Green video of Find us Faithful. It was a good time of prayer and fellowship. I have heard great comments about it and people wanting to do it again next year. Thank you for providing all the great resources."

Will, you join many other grandparents in September planning to bring together grandparents in their sphere is influence to cover this next generation with prayer?
