TIGARD, Ore., June 29, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ — Christian Grandparenting Network is announcing its fifth annual Grandparents’ Day of Prayer (GDOP) on September 13, 2015. The purpose of Grandparents Day of Prayer is for grandparents to unite in prayer for their grandchildren and their parents on the designated National Grandparents Day.
Our grandchildren are living in a desperate moral and spiritual climate navigating in a world hostile to truth. Satan has launched an aggressive attack on all fronts using media, technology, education, social influences and political pressures to desensitize and cloud the boundaries of truth and righteousness that hold nations and families together. Perhaps at no other time in our history is a call to prayer more urgently required than it is today for our grandchildren.
The mission of Christian Grandparenting Network (CGN) is to promote effective grandparenting, which is intentional in teaching our children and grandchildren to know and follow Christ wholeheartedly. CGN is encouraging grandparents to get involved in the movement to make National Grandparents Day a Grandparents’ Day of Prayer to intentionally pray for their grandchildren.
Many years ago, Queen Esther stood in the gap for her people, the Jews, when their physical lives were threatened. Today, grandparents can stand in the gap with prayer for their grandchildren and their parents as their spiritual lies are threatened by the enemy.
We are looking for grandparents to make the National Grandparents’ Day on September 13 a Day of Prayer for the next generation who will participate in this event and take the lead to organize an event, calling grandparents to join in prayer on September 13. This event could be in your church, in your home, in a retirement complex, or any meeting location you choose. CGN will provide step-by-step guidelines, resources, and online tools to help you create a successful event that will engage grandparents in prayer for your event.
Grandparents can find how to get involved and find helpful information, endorsements, and promotional materials and free downloads at www.grandparentsdayofprayer.com.
