Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
Recently in my Bible reading I read the following Scripture which I found challenging, as a grandparent. The Israelites were living in the Promised Land, Joshua had just died, then in Judges 2:10-15 we read (The Message (MSG.)
Our children and grandchildren do not inherit salvation by birth into our families. Nevertheless, we can pray their hearts will be prepared for when they are presented with an opportunity to step into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
God has placed our children and grandchildren in our lives so we can be their prayer warriors. He has given us the awesome opportunity to partner with Him on their behalf. He has given me and my husband, 3 sons, 3 daughters-in-laws, 12 specific grandchildren and 3 greats to pray for. He has given you your family members.
A family’s faith can be lost in one generation; however, we as parents and grandparents can be defenders of our faith. We have the opportunity to powerfully touch the lives of another generation for Jesus Christ. That is why our children and grandchildren are our mission field and our responsibility. So they will not be helpless before their spiritual enemy.
This is why Christian Grandparenting Network is declaring the National Grandparents' Day as a Day of Prayer for our grandchildren and our families.
NOW we are calling all grandparents to join in prayer in their churches, community and around the world for an intentional day of prayer on behalf of the next generation.
