It’s always a pleasure to have Lillian Penner from the Christian Grandparenting Network call us to pray for our grandchildren on Grandparents’ Day. This year it falls on September 9th. As our guest today, Lillian shares how you can become involved. (Thanks bunches, Lillian!)
Grandparents are Uniting in Prayer on Grandparents’ Day
It is a global reality that truth is under attack like never before in our schools, our political arenas, the marketplace, and even in our churches.
Parents and grandparents find themselves involved in a tug of war for the hearts and minds of their children.
It is not easy to navigate in a world hostile to truth in this post-Christian culture, is it? Satan is relentless in his aggressive attack to desensitize our children to truth and righteousness.
The enemy wants to disintegrate and divide our families, rendering them chaotic, restless, and unfruitful.
Let’s not let the enemies distract us or dull our desires to pray for our grandchildren and their parents!
We are in a spiritual battle requiring spiritual weapons
I believe it’s our place as grandparents to get on our knees, humble ourselves, seek God’s face, repent of our sin, and intercede for our nations, our children, and grandchildren.
Then having done all, we stand firm in our faith that God has heard and will answer our prayers according to His will.
Do not be afraid or discouraged . . . . For the battle is not yours but Gods (2 Chronicles 20:15).
Many years ago, when the Israelites’ lives were threatened physically, Esther stood in the gap for her people.
Today, grandparents can stand in the gap for their grandchildren, and their parents, as their spiritual lives are threatened.
United prayer has always bridged the gap between a great need and a great awakening!
Over the last seven years, many grandparents throughout the world have been uniting in prayer on Grandparents’ Day of Prayer.
