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.

Jesus is the Gate

When Jesus says, “I am the gate for the sheep,” (John 10:7, NIV) he is declaring that we are his sheep and always under his protection. There is no greater security than having Christ guard the gate between us and the dangers of the world.
