Are You Standing in the Gap with Prayer for your Grandchildren?

August 20, 2015
We are going to look in God’s Word to see some examples of people He used to stand in the gap for his purpose to be accomplished. The Bible describes prayer as “Standing in the Gap” or “Bridging the Gap” a channel through which God’s will is brought to earth. God chose and appointed Moses to stand in the gap between His people, the Israelites and Pharaoh. Esther stood in the gap for her people, the Israelites with prayer and fasting when Haman wanted to destroy the Israelites. There was no gap between God and the earth after God created the earth. However, after Adam and Eve sinned by eating the forbidden fruit in the garden, sin created a gap between God and his plan for the earth. ¹   Fortunately, God stood in the gap for us by sending His Son, Jesus to the earth to live as a man, die for our sins, and rise from the dead so we could have a personal relationship with Him. He chose us, to be a channel for His power to bridge the gap between himself and the earth. God chose us to partner with Him and intercede in behalf of our children, grandchildren, and future generations. Just as Jesus, Moses, Esther, Daniel, Joseph, and many others in the Bible stood in the gap for God’s people, we as grandparents have the privilege to stand in the gap with prayer for our families. Satan is very active in the world today; he knows his time is short. Paul writes in Ephesians 6:10, “We are to be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.” against Satan’s well-thought-out plans and agenda. His goal is to distract and steal our children, grandchildren, and future generations from their faith in Jesus Christ. Our goal ought to be that our grandchildren would know a full, purposeful, and fruitful life in Jesus Christ. It is not only important to pray for our families individually, it is vital that we unite with other grandparents to pray for our families in these crucial times. As Prayer Coordinator for Christian Grandparenting Network (CGN), I would like to encourage you to stand in the gap for your grandchildren by participating in a Grandparents @ Prayer (G@P) intercessory prayer group. We currently have about 30 G@P groups uniting in prayer for their grandchildren. Go to http://www.christiangrandparenting.net/prayer/grandparents-prayer/introduction-to-g-p check out the locations of current groups, testimonials, and additional information. We would love to have you to be a part of the G@P prayer ministry. I would like to share one of my favorite songs May all who come behind us find us faithful which is my desire for my children, grandchildren and future generations. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zi-Mn5tRHvM  As grandparents, let us be the channels through which God’s will is brought down to earth for our children, grandchildren, future generations and ourselves.

October 29, 2015
Are you a new Baby Boomer grandparent or a grandparent looking for resources and/or suggestions to grandparent with a purpose? We are excited to share some resources and suggestions to help you with your grandparenting that Christian Grandparenting Network (CGN) has available for you. CGN is devoted to challenging Christian grandparents to live intentionally as representatives of Christ for future generations. It is committed to providing a network of resources and opportunities for grandparents to have powerful opportunities for inter-generational dialogue to strengthen grandparent-grandchild relationships and spiritual growth. As the Prayer Coordinator for CGN, I have developed two prayers cards, which many have found helpful to intentionally pray for their grandchildren Email me free downloadable copies. lpenner@christiangrandparenting.net ·      Scriptures to Pray for Your Grandchildren ·      Suggestions to Pray for Your Grandchildren in School: Preschool,                                          Elementary, Teenagers, and College Students. God has also given me the opportunity to write the book Grandparenting with a purpose: Effective Ways to Pray for your Grandchildren. The book challenges grandparents to stand in the gap for their grandchildren by living a godly example and being their prayer warrior. It provides creative suggestions for prayers based on Scriptures, and other helpful tools’, utilizing everything from cell phones to photo prayer journals. This book is available at www.gdptpr.com. CGN has proclaimed the second Sunday in September as Grandparents Day of Prayer, coinciding with National Grandparents Day designated by a Senate proclamation in 1978. It is a way of engaging grandparents to unite in an intentional day of prayer for their grandchildren. Many participants reported how they were blessed as they united in prayer with other grandparents with a common cause. I want to challenge you to participate in the next Grandparents Day of Prayer, on September 11, 2016, as grandparents worldwide will be praying for the next generation as they go back to school this fall. It has been exciting for me to invite grandparents to participate in small groups called Grandparents@Prayer (G@P) to pray for their grandchildren. Just as Esther stood in the gap for her people, the Jews, when they were threatened, likewise grandparents can stand in the gap with prayer for their grandchildren today. G@P groups are meeting in many areas of the United States praying together for their grandchildren on a regular basis. If you would like some information or would like to become a part of a group go to www.christiangrandparenting.net/prayer for details. Cavin Harper, Founder, and Executive Director of CGN wrote an excellent book for grandparents titled, Courageous Grandparenting: Unshakable faith in a broken world. Cavin appeals to the emerging masses of Boomer grandparents to create a movement of godly men and women resolved to not let another generation grow up that does not know the Lord or His amazing grace. It is available on our CGN website. Our Grand Camps for grandparents and their grandchildren are unlike any camp you

How to Pray for the Parents of our Grandchildren

November 5, 2015
Our children have a great responsibility parenting our grandchildren in these insecure, unstable times we live in today. Young families are busy with their jobs, church activities, children’s activities, etc. There are many distractions for them in their marriage, employment, parenting and spiritual lives. Our grandchildren are influenced by the movies, music, TV, video games, and Internet are desensitizing our grandchildren. They are faced with legal recreational marijuana, drugs, sex trafficking, alcohol, sexual identity, homosexuality, pornography, pre-martial sex and more. In today’s broken world, we see the family unit very fragile. 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. We live in the midst of a busy and evil environment filled with many moral and spiritual battles. To pray effectively, we need to know their frustrations, dreams, fears, concerns, and expectations they have for our grandchildren. Ask them, “What are some of the issues you are dealing with right now and how can we pray for you?” Jesus said to his disciples, “The thief comes to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have abundant life.”1 Let’s pray the parents of our grandchildren will not to be distracted and overwhelmed by the influence of the world hostile to the truth. Pray they will experience the abundant life Jesus offers to them and pass it on the their children to follow Jesus. According to God’s Word, praying for our grandchildren and their parents should be a high priority for us. Not all prayers are going to be answered immediately or even in our lifetimes. However, God will acknowledge our intercessory prayers and answer them at just the right time. Prayer for my Grandchildren’s Parents Dear Lord, I want to thank you for the parents of my grandchildren. I pray you will help them to value my grandchildren in the same way You value them. I pray they will submit to the responsibility You have given them to teach their children to love You and live according to your parenting manual, God’s Word. May my grandchildren see their home and family as a “safe place. Help them to be fair and understand my grandchildren as You understand us. Pour out your Spirit upon my them as they parent my dear grandchildren. May God bless them richly as they grandparent with a purpose, In Jesus’ name By Lillian Penner, National Prayer Coordinator for Christian Grandparenting Network John 10:10
