Grandparents Day of Prayer – September 9, 2012

By grandparenting 6 years agoNo Comments

         Christian Grandparenting Network is proclaiming

September 9, 2012 as Grandparent’s Day of Prayer.


Christian Grandparenting Network is asking grandparents all over the world to unite in prayer for their grandchildren on Sunday, September 9, 2012. This date is the official United StatesNational Grandparents Day designated by a Senate proclamation signed by President Jimmy Carter in 1978.

Our grandchildren are living in a desperate moral and spiritual climate navigating in a world hostile to truth. Satan has launched an aggressive attack on all fronts using media, technology, education, social influences and political pressures to desensitize and cloud the boundaries of truth and righteousness that hold nations and families together. Perhaps at no other time in our history is a call to prayer more urgently required than it is today for our grandchildren.

Grandparents are invited to stand in the gap together for their grandchildren as Esther stood in the gap for her people in a desperate time. The call is being issued for prayer warriors to link arms and go to battle for the sake of the next generation in today’s post-Christian culture.

Christian Grandparenting Network is putting a call out to thousands of grandparents who will sign up to pray individually or encourage group participation on this special day of prayer. Everyone who signs up to make Grandparent’s Day of Prayer a high priority to pray will receive a downloadable copy of Scriptures to Pray for your Grandchildren.

“. . .  all the believers lifted their voices together in prayer to God . . .” Acts 4:24 (NLT)
