Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
Our children have a great responsibility for parenting our grandchildren in these insecure, unstable times we live in today. Young families are busy with their jobs, church activities, children’s activities, etc. There are many distractions for them in their marriage, employment, and parenting.
In today’s broken world, Satan’s purpose is to destroy the family. It is important that we pray God will give our children wisdom and time management in their monumental task of guiding our grandchildren in the ways of the Lord.
Dear Lord, first, I want to thank you for the parents of my grandchildren.
Help my children to value their children in the same way You value them.
I pray they will commit to the responsibility You have given
them to teach the children to love You and train them
according to your parenting manual, God’s Word.
Give our children wisdom to manage their time so they will be able
to take the time to teach our grandchildren the ways of the Lord.
Give them wisdom on how to nurture and care for the children.
I pray they will be loving and caring parents.
May the children see their home and family as a “safe place.”
Help them to rule their home well,
not provoking the children to anger.
Help them to be fair and understand the children as You understand us.
Pour out your Spirit upon my children,
as they parent my dear grandchildren.
Bless their homes.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.

PS: I have developed “Thirty-one Scriptures to Pray for Grandchildren” that many grandparents have found helpful to pray Scripture for their grandchildren. Just by joining the mailing list on the right side of this page you will receive the blogs about grandparenting and suggestions to pray for your grandchildren. I will email you a free downloadable copy of “Thirty-one Scriptures to Pray for your Grandchildren” you can print.
