Book Description

From the Author God blessed my husband and me with nine grandchildren ranging in age from seven to twenty-eight years of age. For many years, I felt my prayers for my grandchildren were too general. I prayed that God would bless them, but, ultimately, I grew frustrated and felt something was lacking in my vague, general prayers. I asked God to show me how to become intentional in praying for them.As a result, God has given me a passion to pray intentionally for my grandchildren and given me an opportunity to share my passion with others by writing Grandparenting with a Purpose: Effective Ways to Pray for your Grandchildren. God gives grandparents a sacred trust, an opportunity to imprint another generation with the message of God's faithfulness. I hope this book will encourage you to pray intentionally for your grandchildren. You will find creative suggestions for making praying for your grandchildren a meaningful experience. Regardless of how far away your grandchildren are, praying for them can bridge the distance between you and leave them with an inheritance more precious than gold.
