Let’s make National Grandparents Day on September 7, 2014Grandparents with youong grdcn

A Day of Prayer for our grandchildren.

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 our families, schools and our nation to desensitize our children to truth and righteousness. Perhaps at no other time in our history is a call to prayer more urgently required than it is today for our grandchildren.

God has given grandparents a sacred trust – an opportunity to imprint another generation with His love and faithfulness. Grandparents need to be intentional about the power of prayer to keep the hearts and minds of their grandchildren from falling captive to the enemy’s deception. We are engaged in a spiritual battle that requires prayer as the weapon.

Over the last three years, thousands of grandparents have united in prayer on the National Grandparents Day in September and made it a Day of Prayer for their families. Again, Christian Grandparenting Network (CGN) invites you to be a part of this movement to intentionally pray for our grandchildren, our families and our world making it a Grandparents’ Day of Prayer (GDOP).

We are looking for volunteers who will host or organize an event to invite grandparents to join in prayer on September 7. It may be in your church, in your home, retirement complex or any meeting location you choose, it doesn’t have to be complicated. Keep it simple.

CGN will give you guidelines, resources, and online tools to help guide you through the process of engaging grandparents in prayer.

Join grandparents throughout the world to unite in prayer on September 7
for their grandchildren.

  • Avril Nolte says:

    Our city is reputed to have the highest per capita of retired people so we have plenty of grandparents to pay for all their grandchildren as well as all the grandchildren in the “global village”.
    Prayer is the most powerful weapon against evil attack of our children.

  • Lydia Harris says:

    Thanks for championing prayer for grandkids. It’s important to pray on Grandparent’s Day and all year.
    For those who would like a resource, I wrote a Bible study to encourage and equip grandparents to pass on a legacy of faith. The book is called Preparing My Heart for Grandparenting: For Grandparents at Any Stage of the Journey.

  • Jacqueline Platt says:

    Praise the Lord for this “life line” for our grandchildren. I have 14 and 2 great grands. I am raising a 15 year old and almost threw in the towel. But, God is my breath and my confession all along. He did not and does not give on us. This being my example I will not give up on my granddaughter Grace. together we will see the victory of walking by faith and love.

    I will gladly organize a Grandparent’s Day of Prayer. Thank you for the resources, keep em’ coming!

    To God Be The Glory

    I just found this site. I have 7 grandchildren ranging in age 5month to 15, I am a Christian but I want to learn how to be a praying grandmother. Can I still influence the teens? Feeling quite defeated right mow.
