A Prayer for Grandparents Raising Grandchildren -October 15th
By: Rev. Syvoskia Bray Pope, Pastor, New Century Fellowship Christian Church
Heavenly Father, We praise you, God for our grandparents who are raising our grandchildren. Father, help us to appreciate and celebrate the lives of these inspirational virtuous women who have so much love for their families. She is a woman who is fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of God (Psalm 139:14). She is a reflection of a proverbs 31 woman who does everything she can to protect, love and care for her children. He is the epitome of manhood, a man who does not provoke his children to wrath but brings them up in the love and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4).
Thank you God for her faithfulness, her tenacity, to never give up. Father, thank you for her fruit of the spirit, the patience to wait on you, God. Father, thank you for the joy she shares to lift and bring life to others. Father, thank you for gentleness and meekness she sustains to keep the peace. Thank you for her inner spirit that dwells in the air and changes the atmosphere when she walks in the room. Thank you for his wisdom, patience, and self control. His household is respected because his favorite scripture is "as for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord" (Joshua 24:15).
Right now in the name of Jesus, we lift up grandparents for all that you are doing, the sacrifices that they have made to make this world a better place for our children. We appreciate your love and kindness and we deeply are embraced by your wisdom and knowledge that has been shared toward us.
Father, we pray for bountiful blessings to fall on our grandparents. We pray for the windows of heaven to open up and pour blessings they want have room to receive. Father restore unto these grandparents for all that they has given to others and that they may receive 10, 30 and 100 fold of blessings bestowed unto them in the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
