“Why we Need to Pray for our Grandchildren in Today’s Culture”

February 25, 2016
Today, our grandchildren have many positive and negative influences we didn’t have when we were growing up. We didn’t have the many avenues of media, with the video games, and Internet that are desensitizing our grandchildren. They are also faced with legal recreational marijuana, drugs, sex-trafficking, alcohol, sexual identity, Homosexuality, pornography, pre-martial sex and more. At the Founders Day conference at the Moody Bible Church, Josh McDowell said,” Today there are over 1.5 billion pages of Internet pornography, and 90 percent of our 8- to- 16-year-olds have been exposed to it, even in our Christian homes. The issue is wrecking homes and capturing our children, and it’s all just one click away.” I want to encourage you to take the time to listen to his message. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOSbUjmupWE “Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.” (2 Corinthians 4:4, NLT) “Jesus said that the evil one comes and “snatches away” the seed of the gospel in those who don’t understand it (Matthew 13:19). They’ve been willingly confused by the enemy and don’t realize that they’re blind. “Our struggle as Christians isn’t against the people who do evil things. While they have no excuse for missing the obvious signs of God’s existence (Romans 1:20), they’re not the adversary. We read in Ephesians 6:12 NLT, “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. In the present age, we know that Jesus has won the victory to set people free from evil, but we have yet to see that promise completely fulfilled. We see the hints of his coming on the horizon, but we don’t yet see the Son. Here and now, we face the reality of wickedness and sometimes feel its sting. But even in the midst of that, we have no need to worry.”[1] If you grasp the urgency of our time, then I urge you to signup for the Million Praying Grandparents.

What Are You Going to do for your Grandkids at Easter?

March 2, 2016
Are you going to share the real meaning of why we celebrate Easter with your grandkids this year? Let’s make Easter a special celebration of the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ for our grandkids. Here are a few suggestions: Send your grandchildren an Easter greeting card with a Bible verse and/or a note that you are praying for them. Grandkids always enjoy getting mail from their grandparents. Send a CARE package: Easter egg coloring kit, Easter craft, Easter paper plates, napkins, and cups for a family dinner or a storybook with the true meaning of Easter. Of course, Easter would not be complete without some traditional candy. Email an electronic Easter card. Send them Resurrection eggs which you can purchase at your local Christian bookstore or online at http://www.christianbook.com. Make Resurrection Rolls with the grandkids. Look for the recipe I will post soon. Would you please share some of the things you have done with your grandkids to teach them the real meaning of Easter in the comments below the blog? Taken from the book Grandparenting with a Purpose available on this website. Just go to Purchase. Lillian Penner, National Prayer Coordinator, Christian Grandparenting Network

One Way to Tell your grandkids the Resurrection Story

March 4, 2016
He is not here; he is risen! Luke 24:6  While Easter bunnies and Easter egg hunts are fun, as grandparents there are other fun activities that teach our grandchildren the true meaning of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Grandkids love to get mail so send them an Easter greeting card and tell them that Jesus loves them, you love them and you are praying for them. I have been reading a book written by Janet Teitsort, “Long Distance Grandma.” It’s an excellent book with ideas for staying connected with your grandkids, no matter where they live. The book has recipes, craft ideas, and projects for each month. In addition to praying for our grandchildren, here is an excellent idea for use during the Easter season explaining the resurrection of Jesus Christ. RESURRECTION ROLLS                  This is a great way to celebrate the Resurrection. 1 tube crescent rolls Melted margarine or butter Large marshmallows Cinnamon Sugar Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Help grandchildren wash their hands before working with food. Place a sheet of wax paper before each grandchild to use as a work surface. Hand each grandchild a triangle of crescent roll. Tell them that this represents the cloth that Jesus was wrapped in when He was laid in the tomb. Give each grandchild a marshmallow to represent Jesus. Place a bowl with (warm, not hot) melted margarine or butter in front of your grandchildren and let them dip their marshmallow in it. Explain that the margarine or butter represents the oil that was used to protect and preserve Jesus’s body. Prepare another bowl with cinnamon and sugar. Let each grandchild roll the marshmallow representing Jesus in the mixture. Tell them the cinnamon and sugar represents the spices that were used to anoint Jesus’ body for burial. Wrap the coated marshmallow tightly in the crescent roll. Pinch the sides together; making sure that the dough is completely sealed. Let this step represent the wrapping of Jesus’s body after His death. Place the wrapped marshmallows on a cookie sheet and place in the oven. Bake 10 to 12 minutes at 350 degrees. The oven represents the tomb, while the baking time symbolizes the three days that Christ was in the tomb. When the rolls have cooled slightly, have the grandchildren open their rolls (grave cloth). They will discover that the marshmallow (representing Jesus) is gone. Christ has risen! Have fun with your grandkids as you celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. I highly recommend this book if you are looking for some fun ideas to do with your grandkids.The Resurrection Rolls recipe was used by permission from Janet Teitsort, author of “Long Distance Grandma,” (West Monroe, LA: Howard Publishing, 2005), pages 50, 51.

How are you Utilizing God’s Unique Gift of Communication?

March 10, 2016
God made the first “Cordless” phone, the model was called Prayer, it never loses the signal, and the Holy Spirit does the recharging. The line is never busy; you don’t have to press a number for your language, it is always available 24/7. Prayer is the greatest and lasting gift we can give our families. Material things are needed but they are temporary. Our prayers can be lasting and will have a ripple effect to our grandchildren and future generations. Several years ago, I found a precious letter in my family’s archives. My great-grandfather in Poland wrote to my grandfather, who had immigrated to America. One line in the letter struck me with both comfort and conviction: “I faithfully pray for you, for your children, and for your future generations.”   I am happy to say, I along with my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren are benefiting from his prayers. It’s been a blessing for me to have such a rich spiritual heritage knowing that before I was born, my great-grandfather prayed for me from halfway around the world. However, my great-grandfather’s letter convicted me, making me question myself. How do my prayers spiritually shape the lives of my twelve grandchildren and four great-grandchildren? How can I learn to pray more effectively for them? Then I learned the best way to defeat the enemy is to pray using Scripture verses, the sword of the Spirit according to Hebrews 4:12. Let’s intentionally pray for our children, grandchildren and future generations and watch the ripple effect of our prayers in our families, their careers, and their communities as we pray for them. As we invest in our own walk with the Lord, we are investing in their lives.   Ask yourself: What kind of spiritual impact do I have on my family members? Am I leaving a ripple effect with my prayers for my family? Will my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren want my Jesus? If you sign up to receive my blog on this page I will send you a free printable copy of “31 Scriptures to Pray for your Grandchildren” taken from the book, Grandparenting with a Purpose available on this website.

How to Release your Loved Ones to Jesus

March 17, 2016
Recently I read in Jesus Calling by Sarah Young, “Entrust your loved ones to me; release them into My protective care. They are much safer with Me than in your clinging hands. If you let a loved one become an idol in your heart, you endanger that one—as well as yourself. When you release your loved ones to Me, you are free to cling to My hand.” It is hard to cling to God’s hand when our hands and hearts are full of concerns and worries for our grandchildren and their parents. I have found that if I let go of my concerns and worries asking the Holy Spirit to intercede for me in their behalf according to Romans 8:26,27 I don’t carry the heavy load and He gives me peace. Our grandchildren hear many voices from our culture telling them who they are, what they can do and what they are to believe, where they call wrong right and right wrong. Just as social media Instagram has filters to focus the pictures; we need filters in our lives to recognize the evil and deception in our world today. God gave the Israelites the Ten Commandments to filter their lives when they were surrounded by the cultures of the people living around them. We have the Word of God to filter our lives in the culture that surrounds us today, so we as grandparents, need know God’s Word to leave an example of a godly legacy. Let’s pray our grandchildren will grow into the knowledge of God’s Word so they can use it for their filter to recognize the evil and deception in our secular society.
