Today our nations are being attacked like never before educationally, socially, financially and spiritually. Satan has launched an aggressive attack on our families, schools and our communities to desensitize our children to truth and righteousness. Christianity itself is under assault, and parents and grandparents are involved in a tug of war for the hearts and minds of their children.
As a result, our grandchildren are living in a desperate moral and spiritual climate navigating in a world hostile to truth. Perhaps at no other time in our history is a call to prayer more urgent.
Many years ago, Queen Esther stood in the gap for her people, the Jews, when their physical lives were threatened. Today, grandparents can stand in the gap for the spiritual lives of their grandchildren and their parents just as Esther.
Grandparents who believe in the power of prayer can pray their grandchildren will not become casualties from falling captive to the enemy’s deception. We are engaged in a spiritual battle that requires prayer as the weapon. Christian Grandparents have an opportunity to intentionally imprint another generation with God’s love and faithfulness.
Over the last three years, thousands of grandparents have united in prayer on the Grandparents’ 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 broken world.
In addition, we are also looking for volunteers who will take the lead to organize an 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. CGN will provide step-by-step guidelines, resources, and online tools to help you create a successful event that will engage grandparents in prayer for your event.
Will you accept the challenge to join grandparents throughout the world to unite in prayer on September 7 for their grandchildren?
“One generation will commend your (God’s) works to another,
they will tell of your mighty acts” Psalm 145:4
