Reflect God’s Love to your Grandchildren

April 11, 2016
A question to ask yourself: “Does God’s love reflect from my life to my children and grandchildren like the mountains reflect on the lake when God’s son is shining in my heart?” There is only a reflection on the water if the sun is shining. Taken from the book, Grandparenting with a Purpose: Effective Ways to Pray for your Grandchildren, by Lillian Penner “Invitation to Stand in the Gap” page xiii.

One way you can change the world for your dear grandkids?

April 14, 2016
Have you seen the Facebook post that reads, “I wouldn’t change my grandkids for the world, but I would like to change the world for my grandkids?” As I was thinking about the quote, I was reminded there is something we as grandparents, can do to change the world for our precious grandchildren by link arms with other grandparents to intercede for our grandchildren. We can pray they will develop a soft heart for Jesus and learn to know and follow Him wholeheartedly. In today’s broken world, Satan’s purpose is to destroy the family. It is important that we pray God will give the parents of our grandchildren wisdom and time management in their monumental task of guiding our grandchildren in the ways of the Lord. They live in the midst of a busy and evil environment filled with many spiritual battles. For that reason, Christian Grandparenting Network has a passion to encourage and equip grandparents to pray for their grandchildren. Our mission is to challenge grandparents around the world to intentionally and regularly come together to pray, interceding for their grandchildren, children and communities world. CGN have organized “Grandparents@Prayer” (G@P) intercessory prayer groups. Our goal is to encourage grandparents to be prayer warriors through the personal discipline of intercessory prayer in the battle against the enemy. We encourage grandparents to meet together in small or large groups on a regular basis to unite in prayer at a designated location for 1 hour or longer of guided prayer and fellowship. In Isaiah 58:6 we read that we can “loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke” in our world. One of the ways we can break these chains is by “standing in the gap” with prayer for our dear grandchildren and their parents. Just as Esther stood in the gap for her people, the Jews, when they were physically threatened. Today grandparents can stand in the gap with prayer for our grandchildren and their parents as the enemy threatens their spiritual lives. I have found uniting in prayer with other grandparents for my grandchildren is a special blessing for me. We now have a number of G@P intercessory groups meeting in about 20 states, Canada and South Africa, in retirement Centers, schools, churches and homes. Some of the groups meet weekly, some twice a month or once a month, whatever the group desires. I want to challenge you to ask God whom He would like you to ask to pray with you for each other’s grandchildren. Ask your friends, church senior group, neighbors, family members or whomever. Check out this website to learn more about the G@P prayer groups and complete the form and I will send you additional information. http://www.christiangrandparenting.net/prayer/grandparents-prayer/participate-in-gap   Or you may also email me lpenner@christiangrandparenting.net God told the Israelites, “I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring and my blessing on your descendants.” Isaiah 44:3 By Lillian Penner, National Prayer Coordinator for Christian Grandparenting Network

How to Cling to the Hand of Jesus?

April 21, 2016
Praying Grandparents are in a battle for the next generation, however the battle isn’t ours, it is the Lords. We read in II Chronicles 20:15, “Do not be afraid or discouraged . . . . For the battle is not yours but Gods.” The way to walk through this battle is to grip the hand of Jesus tightly and stay in close communication with him.   It is only as we release our concerns for our grandchildren and their parents we are free to cling to the hand of Jesus. It is hard to cling to His hand when our hands are full of our concerns and worries, we need empty hands to hold His hand. Imagine the impact in our world if Million Plus grandparents who are Prayer Warriors clinging to the hand of Jesus committing their grandchildren and their parents to Him. In an attempt by secular humanists to develop a secular society, they have very strategically and very intentionally whittled away at our Godly heritage. Today it is urgent for grandparents to unite in mass numbers in prayer for the next generation. If you are a grandparent and grasp the urgency for prayer and believe in the power of prayer I urge you to join the many who are signing up for the Million Praying Grandparents. When grandparents sign up they are declaring their commitment to pray intentionally for their grandchildren, their parents and outside influences. As a way of saying thanks for that commitment, you will receive a free printable PDF download of a prayer resource of Scriptures to Pray to help you pray for their grandchildren using God’s Word. To sign up go to www.millionprayinggrandparents.com By Lillian Penner, Prayer Coordinator for Christian Grandparenting Network, lpenner@christiangrandparenting.net  

An Idea for Mother’s Day

April 25, 2016
Let the mother of your grandchildren and great-grandchildren know you appreciate her by sending her a greeting card for Mother’s Day. Include the following prayer or write one yourself showing your support. A Prayer for the Mother of your Grandchildren and Great-grandchildren 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 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 discipline their home well, not provoking the children to anger. Help them to be fair and understand our grandchildren as You understand. Pour out your Spirit upon them as they parent my dear grandchildren. Bless their homes. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Do you Think God’s Timetable is too Slow when you Pray?

April 28, 2016
Do you think God’s timetable is too slow for you in answering your prayers? We read in John chapter 11, where Mary and Martha sent word to their dear beloved friend Jesus to let him know their brother Lazarus was sick. Mary and Martha became impatient when Jesus didn’t come when they thought He should come to heal Lazarus. However, Jesus had different plans, He told the disciples, and “This sickness will not end in death, No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it”. Jesus loved Mary, Martha, and Lazarus very much but stayed in Galilee teaching and healing the sick until the time was right to go for God to be glorified. Two days later Jesus told his disciples that it was time to go to Judea to see Mary, Martha, and Lazarus. However, when they arrived, they learned that Lazarus had been dead for four days. Martha told Jesus, “If You had come sooner my brother would not have died.” Jesus was deeply moved as he went to the grave, asking to have the stone removed from the tomb but Martha said, “But Lord, he’s been dead four days and stinketh.” Jesus told her “Didn’t I tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God”. Then Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out” and Lazarus came out of the tomb.  We can learn several lessons from this story. When we pray asking God for something, we get discouraged as Mary and Martha did because our prayer isn’t answered on our timetable. However, think of all the people Jesus had the opportunity to heal and teach during those two days. Jesus, God’s Son knew the Father’s plan was to glorify his Son by raising Lazarus from the dead, not to heal Lazarus. Isn‘t it great that when we think God is four days late by our timetable He is still on time?  Our finite minds simply cannot grasp God’s infinite ways for answering our prayers. We have no idea how many times we have prayed and He is waiting for the proper time to answer. God often needs to work in our hearts, our character or the person we are praying for before he can answer our prayers. God’s way and timing is always perfect, he knows best, even when we think he is too late, He is still on time.  Is God’s timetable too slow for you at times? Are you getting tired of waiting on God to answer your prayers? Are you disappointed and frustrated because God is not answering on your timetable? Does God want to develop character in your life or in the lives of your loved ones before He is ready to answer? How do you respond when God does not answer your prayers according to your plans? Prayer: Dear Father, I want to thank you for the privilege to bring my concerns to you. Give me patience as I wait
