Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
Therefore, CGN is proclaiming September 11, 2016 as a National Grandparent’s Day of Prayer.
As a grandparent, God has entrusted you with a sacred responsibility to impress upon another generation the message of God’s faithfulness, grace, and to stand in the gap on their behalf through prayer and the power of Christ living through you. Assuming this responsibility means taking seriously the effectiveness of prayer to keep their hearts and minds from falling captive to the enemy’s deception. You are engaged in a spiritual battle requiring spiritual weapons.
On Sunday, September 11, 2016, Christian grandparents everywhere will be asked to stand in the gap together for our grandchildren just as Esther stood in the gap for her people in a desperate time. Together we will link arms with other grandparents in prayer for the sake of the next generations.
If you are interested in serving as an event organizer for the Grandparent's Day of Prayer in your church, the RESOURCE section on our website provides the necessary tools and resources to help you organize and implement a Grandparent’s Day of Prayer event at your church, school or neighbourhoods. Our hope is that thousands of churches will participate in the Grandparent's Day of Prayer. That will require people like you willing to step forward and make it happen.
If you are not interested in being a volunteer, then we invite you to join our Million Praying Grandparents who will be participating to pray on their own or with a small group. Our Lord taught that where two or three are gathered in His name, he is there is their midst. There is always something extraordinary and powerful about a group of people gathering to pray. I encourage you to participate with a group of grandparents during this time of prayer if possible. Sign up, to join the Million Praying Grandparent movement and we will keep you informed about events in your area and pass on to you suggestions and ideas for strengthening your prayer life.
Whether as a Volunteer or joining the Million Praying Grandparents movement, we need YOU to make the Grandparent’s Day of Prayer a reality in your church and community by getting the word out to everyone you can.

We look forward to linking arms with all of you on September 11, 2016 as we stand in the gap through prayer for our grandchildren, our families, our churches and our nation.
May God bless you and find you faithful.
