Christian Grandparenting Network is asking grandparents throughout the world to become part of the solution in our troubled world by joining in prayer on National Grandparents’ Day on September 8 by making it a Day of Prayer.
Our dear grandchildren will be going back to school soon, in some areas, two of mine are starting next week. Grandparents generally tend to be concerned about their grandchildren’s spiritual, emotional, physical, social, and educational environment.
However, Paul tells us in God’s word, “Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, `will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.” ¹ God will displace our worry with peace when we commit our concerns to Him. Our prayers may not be answered according to our agenda but they will be answered in God’s way in His timing.
A family’s faith can be lost in one generation; but grandparents can be defenders of our faith to prevent this loss. Life can be full of disappointments and crises, and if our children and grandchildren turn their backs on their heritage of faith, they will face the challenges and trials of life without God in a chaotic world.
