By grandparenting 5 years agoNo Comments

GDoP color Jan2013Grandparents Day of Prayer is only 93 days away. You may have thought it is a good idea to join in prayer with other grandparents but what would that look like, how would we accomplish that.

I would like to share suggestions for things you can do for Grandparents Day of Prayer on September 8.

  1. Ask your pastor and/or Senior Adult Ministry pastor to make an announcement challenging grandparents to pray for their grandchildren on Sept. 8.
  2. Order “Grandparents Day of Prayer” promotional bookmarks to distribute at your church and to your friends.

3.   Have a potluck after church for grandparents on Sept. 8 and with a prayer time  for your grandchildren.

4.   Invite some of your friends who are grandparents to your home to join you in prayer for their grandchildren.

5.   Make Sept. 8 a special day of prayer as you pray for each of your grand children intentionally.

6.   Send your grandchildren a note to inform them that you will be praying for them individually on September 8, Grandparents Day of   Prayer.

7.   Download and distribute Prayer Suggestions: “31 Scriptures to Pray and Suggestions to pray for Grandchildren in School” available at      http://www.christiangrandparenting.net/free-downloads or purchase the prayer cards on the website.

8.   Under “Free Downloads”, you may also download Bulletin Inserts, Press Release, Church Information Packet, and a Prayer Guide

9.   Listen to a “Not on my Watch’ August 26, 2012 podcast when Cavin Harper,  Executive Director of CGN is interviewing Lillian Penner, the National Prayer Coordinator about Grandparents Day of Prayer.  www.christiangrandparenting.net/podcast.

10.  Check out 2012 Testimonials for ideas.

11.  If you serve a meal for grandparents I can send you a placemats you can download that has “31 Scriptures to Pray for your Grandchildren.” (lpenner@christiangrandparenting.net).

12.  If you cannot do a grandparenting event in your church on September 8 because your church has other plans, postpone to event to a convenient time.
