Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
That is why Christian Grandparenting Network has proclaimed the National Grandparents Day on September 13 to be a Day of prayer to cover our grandchildren and their parents with intentional prayer, especially as many of our grandchildren are going back to school. Have you noticed all the first day back to school pictures on Facebook lately?
Grandparents need to be intentional about the power of prayer to keep the hearts and minds of their grandchildren from falling captive to the enemy’s deception. We are engaged in a spiritual battle.
In today’s broken world, Satan’s purpose is to destroy the family. It is important that we pray God will give the parents of our grandchildren wisdom and time management in their monumental task of guiding our grandchildren in the ways of the Lord. We live in the midst of a busy and evil environment filled with many spiritual battles.
The Movies, Music, TV, Video games, and Internet are desensitizing our grandchildren. They are faced with legal recreational Marijuana, Drugs, Sex-trafficking, alcohol, sexual identity, Homosexuality, Pornography, Pre-martial sex and more.
And so, here we are. In a country where they call wrong right and right wrong, and where our children are growing up in an entitlement society where no one wins, you don’t have to work to survive, and authority is to be challenged – not respected.
So what do we do when we live in a culture of spiritual, social and moral decline? Are we completely without hope and at the mercy of the merciless and the politically correct?
No, We are not without hope. We read in Psalms 46:1, “We have a God who is our refuge and strength, our stronghold in times of trouble.”
