Let’s make Grandparents’ Day on September 11, 2022,

a Day of Prayer for our grandchildren and their parents.

Grandparents’ Day of Prayer aims to raise an awareness of prayer among today’s Christian grandparents. Christian Grandparenting Network (CGN) invites you to participate in this movement to pray intentionally for our grandchildren, their families, and our world on Grandparent’s Day.

Today our nation is being attacked educationally, socially, financially, politically, racially, and spiritually. Christianity is under assault; parents and grandparents are involved in a tug of war for their children’s hearts and minds. They find it hard to navigate a world hostile to the truth with Satan’s aggressive attack on our families and nation. 

We read in 2 Timothy 4:3-4 (NLT) , 
For a time is coming when people will
no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching.
They will follow their own desires and will
look for teachers who will
tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. 
They will reject the truth and chase after myths.” 

According to Barna Research, 58 percent of U.S. adults agreed that “identifying moral truth is up to each individual; there are no moral absolutes that apply to everyone, all the time. Surprisingly, 48 percent of adults who identified as born-again Christians agreed with the statement.1   This is what our grandchildren and their parents are exposed to hearing today.

Grandparents who believe in prayer can make a difference. Grandparents need to be intentional about the power of prayer to keep the hearts and minds of their grandchildren and their parents from falling captive to the enemy’s deception. We are engaged in spiritual warfare that requires prayer as a weapon. Therefore, Christian Grandparenting Network (CGN) invites you to join other grandparents to pray intentionally for our grandchildren, their families, and our world on Grandparent’s Day, September 11.

The Power of Prayer and Intergenerational Friendships

The Power of Prayer and Intergenerational Friendships

There is currently a massive number of young people who are abandoning their faith and leaving the Church. One of the primary factors for those young people who are staying connected to the Church and are flourishing in their faith is that they tend to be marked by having multiple adults investing in their lives. The Pray for Me Campaign gives every young person in the church the intergenerational relationships they need to flourish in faith and life beginning with prayer.
