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.

Many “new” things take place during the month of January. Something about inking new dates sparks our thoughts on how we might make improvements in our lives. For many, this includes a renewed push for spiritual change. In the midst of nature’s winter rest, our hearts have time to consider all that God has done for us. Then, with reverent fear and humble praise, ask how you can make the most of the time you have remaining.

I love celebrating the birthdays of my children and grandchildren. To me, they are the most precious people on Earth. But what if we only acknowledged our family members on their birthdays? Sometimes that’s how we treat Jesus.

Delete the Junk

Much like an email file, many of us store our confessed sins in a deleted file that we keep buried inside our souls. This unseen but ever-present file keeps us tethered to our past mistakes, thereby preventing us from enjoying an abundant, victorious life in Christ. One of the greatest New Year’s resolutions we can make is to forgive ourselves of past mistakes.
