Give the Greatest Gift

Lillian is correct . . . of all the "great" gifts we as grandmas (and grandpas, too) may give to our grandchildren, none is as great, as important, as essential, as needed as our prayers. If you are a grandparent who understands what it means and takes to pray effectively and faithfully for your grandchildren - continue to do so. If you are a grandparent who struggles to pray consistently, take heart! God knows your heart and He wants you to talk with Him. Do not give up. Do not believe the lies of the Devil, because God does want you to talk with Him and He has promised to listen, and answer your prayers. Do not give up!

While there was a time when resources to help grandparents pray for the children they love were few and far between, thankfully today this is no longer the case. Check out the following links for wonderful books for you - and your grandchildren - and resources which are even free.
