We all like to read and hear stories of how God is working in the lives of others, especially how God has answered prayer. It gives us confidence that God will answer our prayers in His timing, in His way, according to His will, as well.
I would like to offer a free copy of Grandparenting with a Purpose to five people who send me a story of how God has answered their prayers in regards to their grandchildren I could share anonymously on my website. Please send your stories to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It saddens my heart to read the prayer requests of many grandparents grieving about the bad choices their grandchildren have made. However, recently I heard a story of how God answered a grandparent’s prayer for their young adult grandchild. She have moved back home to her family and acknowledged her need to walk with the Lord again. When we give our concerns, thoughts, and desires for our grandchildren to God, we will be amazed how He will answer our prayers, in His way, in His timing, according to His will. He already knows our thoughts. However, He is waiting for us to bring our thoughts and requests to Him with joyful expectation. God delights in hearing our prayers just as we love to have our grandchildren come running to us and say “Hi, Grammy, or Hi, Papa.” It is exciting when we see God answering prayers in the lives of our grandchildren.
Don’t forget to send me your stories. I’ll be anxiously waiting to receive them.
