(Psalm 88:13, HCSB)
Since Pops and I have seven grandchildren, I have seven of these books—yes, one for each grand. I try to pray for one grand on one day a week, and when I pray for him/her I write the date (and sometimes a note) inside While They Are Sleeping.
I've told the older grandkids that I pray for them and shown them the While They Are Sleeping books. Two of our grands were at the house recently, and the seven year old seemed very pleased when she saw "her book."
I've also done a great Bible study by Sammy Tippet, Praying for Your Family. Sammy gives specific ways to pray and shares how God answered prayers for his entire family. It's really encouraging!
What a privilege it is to pray for our grands. It’s a gift that money can’t buy ... one that will affect not only their lives today, but also their future.
Do you have any tips that would help grandparents remember to pray for their grands on a regular basis?
Have a great week,
