PrayNetwork Spotlight: Grandparents@Prayer group

Are you a grandparent?  If so, God has given you a special opportunity to bless multiple generations of your family through prayer.  If you're looking for a meaningful way to impact your family tree through the generations, you couldn't find a better ministry than that of prayer. has a group especially devoted to this topic:  Grandparents@Prayer.  Lillian Penner, National Prayer Coordinator for Christian Grandparenting Network, created the group and regularly posts tips, information, and resources to help grandparents pray.  Several books and links to websites are featured in the group, as well as a discussion on praying for grandchildren.


Here is a sample of recent topics addressed in the group:

  • Brief book review of Courageous Grandparenting: Unshakeable Faith in a Broken World
  • Introduction to Grandparenting with a Purpose: Effective Ways to Pray for Your Grandchildren
  • Promotion for the Grandparents' Day of Prayer
  • The rippling effect of a praying grandparent


When Samuel, the last judge of Israel, was giving way to Saul, the first king, his final address to the people included these words: "As for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord by failing to pray for you. And I will teach you the way that is good and right" (1 Samuel 12:23).  Whether you're near your children and grandchildren or farther away, whether deeply involved in their daily lives or less so, the biggest impact you can have on them is to pray.


Check out Lillian's group (link above) and the website, for help and encouragement.  And offer your encouragement to others! Spotlight by Andrew Wheeler.

Moms in Prayer International is another option available to grandmothers. We have grandmothers groups who pray together for their grandchildren and their schools. In WA State, grandmothers can email me at for more information. We disciple women in prayer through a simple 4-Step format. They learn to pray scripturally and specifically in one accord.
