Grandparents are in a battle for the next generation however, the battle isn’t ours, it is the Lords. The way to walk through this battle is to tightly grip the hand of Jesus and stay in close communication with him. It is only as we release our concerns for our grandchildren to Him that we are free to cling to His hand. We cannot cling to his hand when our hands are full of our worries and concerns, only when our hands are empty.
The enemy wants to disintegrate and divide our families, rendering them chaotic, restless and unfruitful. As grandparents let’s not let the enemy distract us or dull our desires to intentionally pray for our grandchildren and their parents. Prayer is our best weapon to defeat the enemy. I believe it’s our place as grandparents to get on our knees, humble ourselves, seek God’s face, repent of our sin, and intercede for our nations, our children and grandchildren. Then having done all, we stand firm in our faith that God has heard and will answer our prayers according to His will.
“Do not be afraid or discouraged . . . . For the battle is not yours but Gods.” II Chronicles 20:15
This is why Christian Grandparenting Network (CGN) has formed Grandparents @ Prayer (G@P) intercessory groups as a way to call grandparents to unite in prayer for their grandchildren and their parents. We believe the battle for the hearts and minds of our dear grandchildren and their parents can be won by praying grandparents who sense the urgency and the need to unite in prayer.
G@P groups can be held 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 start a G@P intercessory prayer group.
