How to Pray for your grandchildren during these unsettling days

I have had a passion for praying intentionally for my nine grandchildren for many years, ages 17 to 38 years and now we have five great-granddaughters, ages 9 months to 7 years. They are such a blessing to me and my husband.

Ten years ago, I was encouraged to write the book, Grandparenting with a Purpose: Effective Ways to Pray for your Grandchildren. The book is bursting with creativity and practical applications equipping you to cultivate godliness in this generation. I want to share my passion for praying intentionally for my grandchild and great-grandchildren with you.   

We all know our world is in turmoil and confusion as we face two current pandemics, the problems of prejudice and injustice plaguing us right now, as the culture stretches our godly boundaries. One thing is crystal clear: politics will not heal us, and the government will not fix us. However, Grandparents must unite in a massive prayer movement rescue of our dear grandchildren and their parents. The “Revised and Expanded” Grandparenting with a Purpose, Effective Ways to Pray for Your Grandchildren" is designed to encourage and equip grandparents to pray for their grandchildren and their parents intentionally.

Since I have had many requests for a study guide to go with the chapters.  I have expanded the book with additional chapters and a study guide for each chapter, which you will find useful.

  • I have found many hurting estranged grandparents today with heavy hearts, so I am addressing that issue in a chapter. Is your grandparenting Painful or a blessing?
  • I include a section looking at a view of the culture our grandchildren and their parents are navigating today.
  • God’s Design for grandparenting plus several additional chapters and Scriptures to Pray for Teens and Scriptures for Grandparents to pray for themselves.

Ken R. Canfield, PHD., Founder of the National Association for Grandparenting and Grands Matter, writes, “This book is a must-read for any grandparent who hungers for supernatural strength and insight and who labors on behalf of their children and grandchildren.”

The Softcover book retails for $14.99 plus shipping. However, I have a special offer of $15.00, including shipping costs in the U.S. I will include four bonus prayer cards:
