Grandparents Day of Prayer

Date: Sunday, September 10, 2017 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Duration: 2 Hours

Throughout the Old and New Testaments, we see men and women standing in the gap, praying on behalf of others. Our greatest example is Jesus, who stands in the gap multiple times, praying for Simon Peter (Luke 22:32), for those who crucified him (Luke 23:34), and for all believers, including us and our grandchildren (John 17).

Like you, I am concerned about my grandchildren having to navigate the ungodliness of this present age. Instead of wringing our hands in angst, we as grandparents need to be folding them in prayer. We have not only the opportunity but the responsibility to stand in the gap by praying for the hearts, souls and minds of our grandchildren.

Since 2010, Christian Grandparenting Network has designated the second Sunday in September as Grandparents Day of Prayer. (It coincides with National Grandparents Day). Our goal is to unite grandparents in prayer for their grandchildren. This year’s Grandparents Day of Prayer is being held on September 10th.

The possibilities for GDOP are endless. Some churches host a prayer breakfast or a luncheon following their morning worship. Others offer an afternoon tea or evening dessert in an individual’s home. Some ministers are willing to address the importance of praying grandparents and set aside a special prayer time during the worship service. Will you consider hosting a Grandparents Day of Prayer event?

If so, Christian Grandparenting Network is prepared to provide step-by-step guidelines, resources, online tools and speakers to encourage, empower and equip the grandparents in your congregation to link arms in prayer for their grandchildren.

For additional information please check our websites at and

If you have any questions contact me (Sherry Schumann) at (843) 991-4543  or Catherine Jacobs at (843)437-0442
