Prayer for Long-Distance Grandparenting

Abba Father,
We pray You bless our relationship with our long-distance grandchildren. Please bridge the miles between us by strengthening the bonds we share with them. Help us discover fun and creative ways to participate in their young lives. Create opportunities for us to bless them, and remind us to pray for them by name everyday. Show us how to leave a written or recorded spiritual legacy and other such “stones of remembrance” (Joshua 4:1-7) for them to enjoy.

And when our hearts ache from missing them, remind us to “rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances (even if we don’t understand why they live so far away); for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus
(I Thessalonians 5:15-18).
In Christ’s Name, we pray.
Amen.
