The Most Powerful Thing a Grandparent Can Do - Pray!

Yes, there are many important and even powerful things a grandparent can do for their grandchildren, but one of the most powerful things we can do is to pray for our grandchildren. Why is this? Consider the following . . . 
  • The biggest reason is because we are not God, but God is! While there are certainly things we can do, when it comes to our grandchildren, there are so many things we can not do. We can - and need to - tell them about God and His love for them, but we can not make them choose to love, know and follow God. However; God can open their eyes, draw them to Him and protect them from the evil one. God is God and He can do what we can not!
  • God does hear and answer our prayers! When we understand there are things we can not do, we can talk to the One Who can do what needs to be done. He promises to hear and answer us!
  • Our grandchildren are impacted in a powerful way to see and hear us pray for them. This impact is real and lasting.
When you think about the most important things for you to do as a grandparent, do not overlook one of the most powerful things you can do . . . pray for your grandchildren. Do this faithfully and then watch and see how God answers and your grandchildren's lives are changed!
