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.

Grieving Through the Holidays

Grieving Through the Holidays

The thought of facing the holidays with a heart heavy from the burden of grief can be overwhelming. Unfortunately, there isn’t a fast-forward or even a pause button for grief. Surviving the holidays while grieving is much like surviving life while grieving; it is done one day, one step, or even one breath at a time. Author Julie Grant offers tools to help those who are grieving to navigate the holidays.

How Long Do I Have to Wait?

How Long Do I Have to Wait?

One of my least favorite things to do is to wait. But God has given instruction, and even commands, on the topic of waiting. For example, “Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him” (Psalm 37:7). During the upcoming time referred to as “Advent” we are doing another kind of waiting: eager anticipation of the celebration of our Savior Jesus Christ’s birth.

Evaluate your current Thanksgiving traditions and determine how you can better use Thanksgiving to make lasting memories and build the faith of your family.
