2. A Prayer for Time with Grandparents
“I remember your genuine faith, for you share the faith that first filled your grandmother Lois and your mother, Eunice. And I know that same faith continues strong in you.” 2 Timothy 1:5 NLT
Father, there is a time for everything and every season. These are truths we know, and though time seems to go slow here on earth, when we sense the light growing dim on our time with our grandparents, we cherish the slow, stretched days with them. Father we want time to absorb their lessons of wisdom, and the stories of their lives.
“Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom.” Psalm 90:12 NLT
Time on this earth is precious, and the more of it we live under the influence of those who have gone before us, the more of an opportunity we have to learn and be sharpened by them in our faith and our everyday lives. Let the fullness of who You have made them to be, become evident to us so we can embrace them fully, carrying on their legacy.
In Jesus’ Name,
3. A Prayer for the Faith of Our Grandparents
“Grandchildren are the crowing glory of the aged; parents are the pride of their children.” Proverbs 17:6 NLT
Father, only You know the heart inside each human chest You have breathed into existence. The faith You grow in each of us happens in Your perfect timing, and all of us have a chance to know You and accept salvation through Christ on this earth.
“But you must remain faithful to the things you have been taught. You know they are true, for you know you can trust those who taught you. You have been taught the holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus.” 2 Timothy 3:14-15 NLT
We aren’t always privy to the faith of our grandparents… what they believe, and if they believe in You. Today, our hearts break wide open in prayer that they do believe in You and have embraced Your Son as Savior. If they have not, we pray for their hearts to be softened, opened, and ready to receive Him and walk with You eternally.
In Jesus’ Name,
