Pray Your Grandchildren Will Be People Who Pray

Yes, our true grandma (and grandpa/parent) power is prayer, because the One to whom we pray is big enough to hear and answer our prayers. We need to know and hold to this truth, but we also need to be purposeful about communicating this to our grandchildren, because their true "super power" is found in prayer, too!

So, as you go through your Christmas celebrations and look at beginning a new year, consider making the following from Psalms 27:7-14 your prayer for your grandchildren . . . 

Dear Heavenly Father, Please remind my grandchildren (and grown children) today, wherever they are in this moment, they are able to truly trust You to hear their voice when they call upon You. Please help them see and experience Your mercy and how You answer their prayers. I pray they will have hearts which want to seek Your face and will be committed to doing so. As my grandchildren grow up, please help them understand and be able to see how You have helped them. I pray they will remember You will not reject or forsake them. Please give my grandchildren (and grown children) hearts which want You to teach them Your way, and then make the choice to follow where You lead. Please do not turn them over to those who are against them. I pray they will experience and remain confident of Your goodness and will choose to wait for You! Please help them be strong, take heart, and wait for You. Thank You for Your great love for us; I love You, too! Amen!
