Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
Have you heard about the new “Revised & Expanded Grandparenting with a Purpose" book? It is filled with effective ways to pray intentionally for your precious grandchildren. An excellent grandparenting book to read while sheltered at home.
In addition to the senior discounts, God has given most of us the special gift of grandparenting when we approach our mid-life season of life. The privilege of being a grandparent frequently is called “the frosting on the cake.” a special time in life.
We are living in challenging times as the world is sinking into spiritual depravity. The media-driven culture is desensitizing our grandchildren and many of their role models are disappointing them. Since our world is in 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 lives 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 physical protection of our grandchildren and their parents so they do not become victims of our culture.
However, God has given grandparents a sacred trust, an opportunity to imprint a child’s life with God’s faithfulness. Just as Esther stood in the gap for her people, the Israelites, when their lives were threatened, we can stand in the gap for our grandchildren with our example and our prayers. By standing in the gap, reflecting our love for God, we share how He has blessed us as we walk with Him and continue to grow in our relationship with Him.
Dr. Ken Canfield, Founder of the Nat’l Assoc. for Grandparenting and Grands Matter writes, “For any grandparent who hungers for supernatural strength and insight and who labors on behalf of their children and grandchildren, this book is a must-read.”
I invite you to utilize the resources in this book to help you stand in the gap to pray intentionally and deliberately, reflecting the face of God to your grandchildren. I hope and pray this book will challenge you to be your grandchild’s faithful prayer warrior, asking Jesus Christ to do a great work in their lives. The study guides after each chapter make the book an excellent resource for group study.
The earnest prayer of a righteous person (grandparent) has great power
and produces wonderful results. (James 5:16c NLT)
