Guest Post: Lillian Penner from the Christian Grandparenting Network
I am the National Prayer Director for Christian Grandparenting Network and I have a dream to form a movement of A Million Praying Grandparents who will commit to pray intentionally and regularly for their grandchildren and their parents. I want to communicate my passion to you because I believe you too, share my concern for our grandchildren growing up in the broken world we live in today.
In an effort to unite grandparents globally to pray for this next generation, Christian Grandparenting Network is launching a new prayer campaign for 2016 called A Million Praying Grandparents. Can you imagine the impact that one million or more praying grandparents can have on their grandchildren and the world if we make the commitment to link arms and do it together?
The mission of Christian Grandparenting Network is to mobilize grandparents throughout the world to commit to pray daily for their grandchildren and their grandchildren’s parents. In Christian Living Today, a magazine for senior adults, Editor, Randy Swanson, wrote a few years ago “The role of grandparenting is becoming more important than anyone would ever have imagined. The rescue of our culture may well rest on the shoulders of today’s grandparents.”1
Perhaps at no time in history is a call for intentional prayer more urgently needed than today. If you grasp the urgency of our time, then I urge you to join the Million Praying Grandparents movement linking arms in prayer for the next generation.
Our Grandchildren are our primary mission field. Can you imagine the impact of a MILLION or more grandparents committed to Intentionally pray for their grandchildren can have on the world.
If you grasp the urgency of our time, then I urge you to signup for the Million Praying Grandparents. When you join the Million Praying Grandparents Movement you are declaring your commitment to pray regularly for your grandchildren.
As a way of saying thanks for that commitment, you will receive free printable copy of a Million Praying Grandparents Prayer Resource to help you intentionally pray for your grandchildren using God’s Word.
Now you must make a decision:
For the sake of the hearts, minds and souls of your grandchildren, will you say, “YES I will join the Million Praying Grandparents movement?” Go to the Million Praying Grandparents website http://www.millionprayinggrandparents.com and follow the instructions to sign up to be a part of the Million Praying Grandparents movement?
I will appreciate it if you will share my vision getting a Million Praying Grandparents unite in prayer for their grandchildren with your friends. Will you encourage your friends to become a part of the Million Praying Grandparents movement to impact the next generation to know and follow Christ wholeheartedly?
