Why Pray for your Grandchildren’s Parents?

By grandparenting 4 years ago5 Comments

In today’s broken world, Satan’s purpose is to destroy the family. It is important thatFamily we pray God will give our children, the parents of our dear grandchildren wisdom and time management in their monumental task of guiding our grandchildren in the ways of the Lord.

Dr. James Dobson writes, “There is no more important job in the universe than to raise a child to love God, live productively, and servehumanity. The responsibilities of effective parenthood are staggeringly heavy at times. Children are terribly dependent on their parents and the task of meeting their needs is a full-time job.”

When Nehemiah faced opposition in building the wall in Jerusalem, he told the people, “Don’t be afraid of them, Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, sons, and your daughters, your wives and your homes”Just as Nehemiah asked the people to fight for their families, we as grandparents need to use our prayers to fight the opposition from the enemy our grandchildren face today.

That is why we are asking grandparents throughout the world to join in prayer for their grandchildren and their parents. 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.

Lets make the National Grandparents Day a Day of Prayer

for our grandchildren and their parents.

    It is obviously true that the parents of our grandchildren have a very important influence on them. I likened them as the soil where the grandchildren are closely nourished not only physically ,mentally ,emotionally but importantly their .spiritual growth. And if the soil is barren,unfertilized and not watered how will it nourish the plants (our grandchildren)? In our prayer groups. we do … pray for the parents Often than not, the parents are the needy ones for salvation and or restoration .
    Sadly, they are giving the wrong messages to the grandchildren by their lifestyles and worldly examples.
    Thank you for pointing out in your book…a great book for both parents and grandparents.
    God bless you.

  • Lourdes,
    Thank you for your comments. I am glad to hear that you pray for the parents of the grandchildren in your prayer group. We do in the one I attend also. They definitely have a great responsibility to nourish the godly seed for it to grow. Their lives seem so busy and sadly do send the wrong messages. Lord help the parents of our grandchildren to be a godly example and invest in their spiritual lives.

    Praying for my grandchildren daily, I also take time to let their parents know specifically what I am praying so they can look for God at work.
