Prayer for Grandparents to Hand Down the Faith

Heavenly Father,

The “harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few” (Luke 10:2). Therefore, we earnestly pray You will raise up an army of grandparents who, recognizing the harvest set before them, commit the remainder of their time on this earth to leaving a legacy of faith to their children and their children’s children. 


Plant the grandparents’ feet on a firm foundation, so their Christian witness is true, void of hypocrisy and contradictions. Encourage them to share their faith stories with their families, as they proclaim Christ’s message of forgiveness and redemption. Help them serve as conduits of Your love as they speak blessings into their grandchildren’s lives. And like Epaphras (Colossians 4:12), let them struggle in prayer for the salvation and sanctification of their future generations.

In Christ’s Name, we pray.
Amen.
