Something New Emerging for Praying Grandparents in 2016

January 11, 2016
I am the National Prayer Director for Christian Grandparenting Network and I have a dream to form a movement of A Million Praying Grandparents who will commit to pray intentionally and regularly for their grandchildren and their parents. I want to share my dream/passion with you because I believe you too, share my concern for our grandchildren growing up in the broken world we live in today. The mission of Christian Grand parenting Network is to mobilize grandparents throughout the world to commit to pray daily for their grandchildren and their grandchildren’s parents. In Christian Living Today, a magazine for senior adults, Editor, Randy Swanson, wrote a few years ago “The role of grandparenting is becoming more important than anyone would ever have imagined. The rescue of our culture may well rest on the shoulders of today’s grandparents.”1 Our Grandchildren are our primary mission field. Can you imagine the impact o a MILLION or more Praying Grandparents committed to Intentionally pray for their grandchildren can have on their grandchildren and the world. If you grasp the urgency of our time, then I urge you to signup for the Million Praying Grandparents, linking arms in prayer for the next generation. As a way of saying thanks for that commitment, you will receive free printable copy of a Million Praying Grandparents Prayer Resource to help you intentionally pray for your grandchildren using God’s Word. I will appreciate it if you will share my vision of a Million Praying Grandparents uniting in prayer for their grandchildren with your friends. Will you encourage your friends to become a part of the Million Praying Grandparents movement to impact the next generation to know and follow Christ wholeheartedly. Perhaps at no time in history is a call for intentional prayer more urgently needed than today. Will you go to the Million Praying Grandparents website   millionprayinggrandparents.com and follow the instructions to sign up to be a part of the Million Praying Grandparents movement?

How do you Influence Your Grandchildren Spiritually

January 14, 2016
When you get discouraged after listening to the daily events on the newscast, what is your response? Do you get discouraged, complain, or worry how it might affect your family? We are living in challenging times, shaken by the unrest in the world. As we listen to the news it seems like our world is sinking further into moral and spiritual depravity. We fear for the future of our grandchildren, absolutes are not recognized and authority questioned. God is being pushed to the perimeter of our culture at the time when we really need Him. We influence our grandchildren whether purposely or unknowingly. God’s Word tells us we are to influence others toward God and His purposes, especially our own children and grandchildren. We have a wonderful opportunity to share how God has brought us though the challenges and difficulties in our lives when we trusted Him. Even though our journey in life may have been difficult at times, God walked with us. We read in Psalm 25:4-6, “One generation will commend your works to another, they will tell of your mighty acts. They will speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty . . .They will tell of the power of your awesome works and I will proclaim your great deeds.” God has given us two avenues that we can use in order to maximize our influence for His glory. Here are the two ways to influence your grandchildren: Prayer – God has given us the avenue of prayer as the best weapon against the evil in our world today. Nothing threatens the enemy more than grandparents praying intentionally and regularly for their grandchildren, especially when we are praying God’s Word. Example –God has given us His example of how to live a godly life in His Word, which should be how we live our lives, as grandparents. On the way to a restaurant the other day, my granddaughter said, “Tell them I am only eleven years old even though I am twelve years old now, then I can eat for the children’s price”. It was a good time to be a good example and not lie about her age. “In everything set them an example by doing what is good.” Titus 2:7 What is your attitude toward the moral and spiritual depravity of our nation, one of acceptance, indicating there is nothing we can do about it? It is just the sign of the times, or on the other hand, is your attitude one of concern, praying, and trusting the Lord to walk with us during these difficult times? Are you praying that truth will stand and the deceit exposed? The power of God is the only thing big enough in the world to help us rise above the economic, hostile conditions of our world and the difficult things we face in life. Paul writes in Ephesians 6:10, 11, “Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that

Two Unique Valentine Ideas for your Grandchildren

January 27, 2016
Valentine’s Day is an excellent time to communicate to your grandchildren that you love them and pray for them regularly. Send a Valentine card to your grandchildren. Write this prayer or your own prayer in a card. Dear God, give ________ a good heart: ♥   a heart that is gentle, tender, and teachable ♥   a heart that loves You ♥   a heart that wants to obey You   ♥   a heart You can use for Your glory  In Jesus name, Amen. Here’s another Valentine’s Day idea for grandparents is to show and teach love for others to their grandchildren. For example, send them a Valentine with two five-dollar bills (or whatever amount you desire.) One five-dollar bill is your love gift to them; the other five-dollar bill is for them to show love forward to where they see a need. This will give you an opportunity to discuss different options of how they can show love to others. Then ask them to report to you how they showed their love forward. “Dear Friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another” I John 4:11.

God Wants an Intimate Relationship with you

February 4, 2016
Isn’t it exciting to have your precious grandchild come running into your arms with hugs and kisses? Your six-year-old granddaughter calling to tell you she lost her first tooth and the tooth fairy is coming to her house or your seven-year-old grandson thrilled to tell you how many goals he made in his soccer game. Last Saturday my two youngest granddaughters came over to visit and we enjoyed making cookies together. Just as you enjoy your relationships with your grandchildren, God enjoys your relationship with Him. This month as we celebrate Valentine’s we are reminded of our relationships, a time when friends express love to each other. However, it can also be a great reminder for us to express our love to our heavenly Father for the privilege of having a personal relationship with Him. Prayer is about a relationship, our relationship with God, and those for whom we pray. God gave us the gift of prayer so we could communicate with Him because He loves us and desires our communication. God does not want us to make our prayers a great production He wants to have a personal, intimate conversation with us speaking from our hearts, sharing our fears and struggles. Paul Miller writes in his book, The Praying Life, “American culture is probably the hardest place in the world to learn to pray, we are so busy that when we slow down to pray, we find it uncomfortable. We prize accomplishments, production. However, prayer is nothing but talking to God. It feels useless, as if we are wasting time.” ₁ Our heavenly Father rejoices when we take the time in our busy, hurried life to communicate with Him in prayer, expressing our love to Him, since relationships thrive on communication. The enemy, Satan distracts us with our busy lives hindering our walk with God by distracting our thoughts, making our prayers shallow, hurried, or rote. We face a great deal of stress, difficulty, and disappointments in life for which we need to be deliberate in setting a regular time to pray for our loved ones and ourselves, not just when we have a crisis.  Our lives will be less stressful if we bring our needy hearts to God asking Him to work out His agenda in our life and in the lives of our loved ones, instead of giving Him our agenda. As we see our prayers answered, we will grow into a more intimate relationship with God and experience more boldness in our praying. Do you sometimes feel like you are too busy to pray? Are your prayers hurried or repetitious? When you pray do you find it hard to connect with God in our distracting world?
