Have You Heard About the Grandparents Day of Prayer?

Let’s make Grandparents Day on September 11, 2022, a Day of Prayer for our grandchildren and their parents.

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. Grandparent’s Day of Prayer aims to raise an awareness of prayer among today’s Christian grandparents.

Grandparents who believe in prayer can make a difference.

Grandparents need to be intentional about the power of prayer to keep their grandchildren and their parents’ hearts and minds 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 of Prayer, September 11.

Grandchild of the Month

Grandchild of the Month

My friend, Susan, was troubled by her visits with her grandchildren. It wasn’t chocolate cupcakes smashed into the carpet, crayon marks on the kitchen counter, or children’s voices reverberating through the house. The troubling part was she never had one-on-one time with any of her grandchildren. In order to create time with each grandchild, Susan enacted a “Grandchild of the Month” plan. Here’s how she did it.

Without Vision, the People Will Perish

In today’s culture there is a new kind of family springing up all over our nation. It’s called, “Grandfamily”. When the opioid epidemic slammed the US, a new epidemic followed shortly thereafter: the Grandparent’s epidemic. Nearly 90 % of the grandfamilies today were created due to an addiction and it’s changing the structure of families globally. We need to share new and exciting dreams with these children.

The World Has Changed – How Should We respond?

The shift in culture that America has experienced has been so sudden and strange that it has left many youth and children’s ministry leaders scratching their heads. Assuming that the rate of cultural change is unlikely to slow, how do we respond as God’s people? We need a reorientation that will especially benefit younger generations.
