A Grandparent’s Day of Prayer: September 13, 2015

Day of Prayer

“Christian Grandparenting Network is asking grandparents all over the world to unite in prayer for their grandchildren on Sunday, September 13, 2015. This date is the official United States National Grandparents Day designated by a Senate proclamation signed by President Jimmy Carter in 1978.

Our grandchildren are living in a desperate moral and spiritual climate navigating in a world hostile to truth. Satan has launched an aggressive attack on all fronts using media, technology, education, social influences and political pressures to desensitize and cloud the boundaries of truth and righteousness that hold nations and families together. Perhaps at no other time in our history is a call to prayer more urgently required than it is today for our grandchildren.

The mission of Christian Grandparenting Network is to promote effective grandparenting, which is intentional about helping our children and grandchildren know and follow Christ wholeheartedly.

NOW it is calling all grandparents to join in prayer in their churches, community and around the world for an intentional day of prayer on behalf of the next generation.”

    I couldn’t agree more about the danger of these times to the souls of children. This prayer mission is a beautiful idea and I hope it catches on and becomes as important and as well observed as any other national holiday.
    I so often am grateful that social media was not a part of our lives when my now late-20s daughters were teenagers. But that passes the problem to this next generation and increases the need for our prayerful support. Satan is indeed at the forefront of the battle against Christian families today.

      Amen, Joyce. This prayer date falls on the official Grandparents Day, so I’m hoping that it will catch on as part of that day’s celebration! I believe this is the 4th year…praying for many participants. Spread the word!!
