"Point Your Kids In the Right Direction"

As the new school year begins, we will take time each day to look at Scripture which will encourage us as we pray on purpose for the grandchildren gifted to us by God and which we are able to share with them to encourage them as they return to their studies.

While there are no shortage of verses where we could begin, today we will look at Proverbs 22:6 -
Point your kids in the right direction—
    when they’re old they won’t be lost.

This is what intentional, purposeful grandparenting is all about - pointing our grandchildren in the right direction, so they will love, know and follow God throughout their lives. Consider making this verse your prayer as the children you love return to another year of school.
Dear Father, thank You for providing Your Word to help us know the right way for us and for our grandchildren. As they return to school, please help me know the right way to "point" them and please open their eyes, so they are able to see how You want them to live. Please protect their hearts and minds from any who would sidetrack or derail them and their faith and help them grow closer to You, so they will love and follow You all their lives. If they should wander from Your way, please draw them back, so they love You with their all. Thank You for Your great love. Amen.
