Pray for the Adult Influences on Your Grandchildren

By grandparenting 4 years ago2 Comments

learn biology in schoolHave you thought about praying for the many adults who influence your grandchildren? Are the adults involved in your grandchildren’s lives good role models?

Adults who have influence on your grandchildren may be their other grandparents, teachers, principal, coaches, carpool or bus drivers, Sunday school teachers, children’s directors, pastors, youth leaders, neighbors, scout leaders, extra-curricular activity teachers, doctors, etc. Many other adult influences indirectly affect our grandchildren, including elected and appointed officials, (local, state, and federal), TV producers, developers of electronic games, musicians, textbook authors, members of the media, fashion designers, etc.

Ask your grandchildren for their teachers’ names, and, if possible, meet their teachers and others involved in their lives so you know for whom you are praying. It makes praying more personal if you have an opportunity to tell them you are praying for them or you can send a note.

Dear Father,

  • I pray the adult influences of my grandchild will always speak the truth, model lives of integrity to the children, and transport the children safely, looking out for the children’s best interest.
  • I pray they will make the children feel safe, protecting them from verbal, emotional, and physical abuse.
  • I pray they will be encouragers to the children, live blameless lives, do what is right, and speak the truth with a sincere heart.

                                          In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    God bringing me to this place has already changed my life.

    Now I don’t feel alone in my prayers for my grandchildren
    I believe others now are praying for them as I am praying for their grandchildren
