Lord Jesus,

We acknowledge Grandparents Day of Prayer (the second Sunday of September) by thanking You for our grandchildren and praying for their salvation. Our love for them is indescribable. Truly, they are our delight!

We pray you awaken them with the Truth of the Gospel message. Let them understand that You stepped down from the throne of God, took off Your heavenly crown and exchanged Your radiance for human flesh-and-blood. Let them comprehend that You willingly went to Calvary, where You suffered and died for our sin. Let them grasp the significance of the empty tomb from which You were raised on the third day, having conquered sin and death.

Let them receive Your gift of grace and salvation. Let them confess and repent of their sin and invite You into their lives as their Lord and Savior. Let them “walk in newness of life” (Romans 6:4), now and forevermore.

After all, we can’t imagine eternity without them.

We pray this prayer in Your Name,

Amen.
