This year for Mother’s Day, send the mother of your grandchildren a greeting card with this prayer and let her know you appreciate her nurturing and caring for your grandchildren.
Prayer for your Grandchildren’s Mother
Dear Lord, I want to thank you for the mothers of my grandchildren.
Help them to value their children in the same way You value them.
I pray they will be committed to the responsibility You have given them to teach our grandchildren to love You and train them according to your parenting manual, God’s Word.
Give them wisdom to manage their time wisely so they will be able to take the time to teach our grandchildren the ways of the Lord.
Give them wisdom in how to nurture and care for our dear grandchildren.
I pray they will be loving and caring mothers.
May our grandchildren see their home and family as a “safe place.”
Help their mothers to rule their home well,
not provoking the children to anger.
Help them to be fair and understand our grand children as You understand us.
Pour out your Spirit upon them as they parent my dear grandchildren.
Bless their homes.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
