The Five Most Important Things on My Grandparent's "To-Do List" - #2 - Pray for My Grandchildren

When it comes to my Top Five To-Do List of things I do with my grandsons, three of these things are "no-brainers": listen to them, have fun with them and tell them I love them. All important things. All essential things. But the top two things on my list are the most important. These are the things I must not fail to do. So, today I'm sharing the #2 most important thing on my top Five Things on My Grandparents' To-Do List . . . 

#2 - Pray for My Grandchildren

When it comes to praying for my grandsons, I pray specifically. I ask God to open their eyes, draw them to Him and to protect them from the evil one. I pray for them to be people who choose to love, know and walk with God and ask Him to protect their hearts and minds. This world may cause us to wonder and be concerned, but God is bigger than I think He is - He is able to do ever so much more than I am even able to begin to imagine! I pray because He is able to do what I am not able to do.

When I think about my Grandparent's To-Do List, praying for my grandsons is absolutely on the list - and so is one important "tweak" . . . I want to help my grandsons learn to be people who pray. Oh yes, it is vital for me to be a grandma who prays for my grandsons, but it is equally as vital for them to learn to be people who pray. I want them to be boys, then young men and eventually men who pray, so both praying for them and helping them learn to pray are absolutely on my To-Do List. What is on Your To-Do List?
