Resources for Intentional Grandparenting

A Grandparent’s ChallengeI received the special gift of grandparenting as I approached my midlife season. It was exciting to become a grandparent! However, I learned that along with this gift came a sacred trust to imprint another generation with the message of God’s faithfulness. Reflecting on my new responsibility, I realized my prayers were too general and vague and I became frustrated with how I was praying for my grandchildren.…See More

Here's how You can stand in the Gap with Prayer for your Grandchildren

A good friend focused my attention on Isaiah 60:1-2 as a word from the Lord for the New Year:  “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.  See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you.” I can feel the invading darkness of evil that is like a heavy…See More

How to I learned to Pray for my Grandchildren

 Early in my life, I felt my prayers were too general for my family, I asked God to give me wisdom and insight on how I could pray more intentionally. I discovered praying God’s Word was a great resource to help me to pray not only for my grandchildren and their parents but also for myself. When I pray according to God’s Word, I am in line with His will, enabling me to pray with confidence, direction, power, and wisdom according to Hebrews 4:12, “The Word of God is full of living power.” I have…See More

Families have a tremendous need for prayer

Why should we pray for our families?Cultural pressures are increasing on our grandchildren and their parents. However, grandparents can help the next generation navigate these cultural issues. Just as Esther stood in the gap for her people, the Jews, when they were threatened, physically, we can stand in the gap with prayer for our families as the enemy threatens their spiritual lives.  …See More

God Wants an Intimate Relationship with you

Isn't it exciting to have your precious grandchild come running into your arms with hugs and kisses? Your six-year-old granddaughter calling to tell you she lost her first tooth and the tooth fairy is coming to her house, or your seven-year-old grandson thrilled to tell you how many goals he made in his soccer game. I spent a day with my two youngest granddaughters came…See More

Are you Standing in the Gap with Prayer for your Grandchildren?

As I look ahead into 2019, it looks like our national and global situation is in turmoil. Our world is in a moral and spiritual decline, we are in a battle for the minds and hearts of our dear grandchildren. The enemy is trying to steal their hearts and the plans God has for them. In addition to trying to destroy their faith, the enemy is trying to destroy the morals of our country, especially the family unit. It is urgent that we stand in the gap to pray for the spiritual, emotional, and…See More

My Christmas Memory - What it means to me now.

   As I was looking at the forlorn misshapen tree standing in the snow on the cover of a book I was reading last week, I was reminded of the Christmas tree we had at my house when I was a child.  When I was six years old, my parents had very little money to spend at Christmas. In order for my parents to have enough money to buy a present for me, they decided to cut a branch from our juniper tree in the yard for our Christmas tree. I remember at the time, I thought it was ugly, straggly, and…See More

Are You Standing in the Gap with Prayer for your Grandchildren?

 By Lillian Penner We are going to look in God’s Word to see some examples of people He used to stand in the gap for his purpose to be accomplished. The Bible describes prayer as “Standing in the Gap” or “Bridging the Gap” a channel through which God’s will is brought to earth.  God chose and appointed Moses to stand in the gap between His people, the Israelites, and Pharaoh. Esther stood in the gap for her people, the Israelites with prayer and fasting when Haman wanted to destroy the…See More

Lillian, I guess I don't fully understand how this works, but I thought joining Pray! Network was linked to the Grandparents @ Prayer network.  Either way, I do want to be a part of the Grandparents @ Prayer group.  I am not sure you received my message regarding September 11th emphasis.  After discussing it with a staff member and realizing the church had made arrangements for another observance of 9/ll and  since our group is meeting on the 8th, I will make a special emphasis on each of us setting aside a time for specific prayer for our grandchildren.  It probably will be an individual thing, instead of a church-wide observance.  Thanks, Lillian
