Grandparents who believe in the power of prayer can make a great impact on their children, grandchildren and future generations not only on National Grandparents’ Day but everyday.
Cavin Harper, Executive Director of Christian Grandparenting Network (CGN) says. In his book, “Courageous Grandparenting, “Builders and Boomer generations represent the majority of today’s grandparents. There are nearly eighty million of us. Yet on our watch we have stood by in silence and allowed the Father of lies to inject his venom into our culture, hardening men’s hearts to the truth.”
However, during the last three years, thousands of grandparents have united on National Grandparents Day to make it a Day of Prayer for their grandchildren and their parents. On September 7th we have yet another opportunity to link arms in prayer across this nation and around the world. Will you help us in this cause?
We need your help
We need grandparents to help us promote this event and who will take the lead to arrange event-calling grandparents to join in prayer on September 7. This event could be in your church, in your home, in a retirement complex, or any meeting location you choose.
It’s not a complicated process; Christian Grandparenting Network (CGN) will provide you with a step-by-step guideline manual, resources, and online tools to help you create a successful event that will engage grandparents in prayer in your church or community.
