Heavenly Father,

Help us to be the best grandparents we can be. Give us wisdom and discernment, as we strive to find a balance between being too strict or lenient. Help us navigate time constraints, financial worries and difficult family dynamics, in order to build long-lasting relationships with our grandchildren. Show us how to love our children and grandchildren as You love them, unconditionally and without reservation or restraint.

Let us give You thanks for the indescribable joy our grandchildren bring to this season of our lives. And please let us hear You say, “Well done, good and faithful servant” (Matthew 25:21).

In Jesus’ Name, we pray.
