Praying for My Grandchildren


My Grandmother is Praying for Me

 Are you a grandmother? Or maybe you know a grandmother, are married to one, or fondly remember your own. Whatever category you are in, authors and grandmothers Kathryn March, Pamela Ferriss, and Susan Kelton invite you to join them in becoming actively involved in the lives of grandchildren. The world continues to change, and sometimes it seems that the generation gap has never been larger. But one thing always holds fast: our children and grandchildren need to know and live by the wisdom that God has outlined for them in His Word. Concerned grandparents want their grandchildren to know His Word for themselves—and there is no better way for this to happen than to pray to the Author of all wisdom. Here is a yearlong, day-by-day guide for grandmothers not only to pray for the godly character development of their grandchildren, but also to teach them to apply His Word to their lives. 

I consider it a privilege and a blessing to be able to pray for my children and grandchild that they would know the Lord intimately in their hearts, seek to honor and obey Him, and live their lives as a testimony to His death and resurrection on their behalf.  To Jesus be the Glory forever!
