It is a global reality that truth is under attack like never before in our schools, our political arenas, the marketplace, and even in our churches. Christianity is under assault, and parents and grandparents find themselves involved in a tug of war for the hearts and minds of their children. It is not easy for our grandchildren to navigate in a world hostile to truth in this post-Christian culture. Satan is relentless in his aggressive attack to desensitize our children to truth and righteousness.
This is a spiritual battle requiring spiritual weapons. Our grandchildren and their parents not only need our support, they need our earnest prayers. They need our united prayer, a genuine, unified prayer for our hope and dreams for the next generation to be realized. Jesus declared, “Again I say to you, that if two believers on earth agree [that is, are of one mind, in harmony] about anything that they ask [within the will of God], it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in My name [meeting together as My followers], I am there among them” (Matt. 18:19-20).
Christian Grandparenting Network (CGN) is claiming National Grandparents’ Day on September 10, 2017 as a Grandparents’ Day of Prayer. We believe the battle for the hearts and minds of our dear grandchildren and their parents can be won only by praying grandparents who sense the urgency and unite to do battle in prayer.
In the past, united prayer has always bridged the gap between a great need and a great awakening! Our grandchildren and their parents urgently need our unified prayers. Let’s be a community of grandparents uniting in prayer for our families.
CGN would like to invite all praying grandparents to join us to come before God’s throne of grace, to obtain mercy and find grace in our time of need for our grandchildren and their parents.
Will you help us call grandparents to join in prayer on September 10th? This event could be in your church, home, 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.

We need volunteers who will take the lead to organize an event calling grandparents to join in prayer on September 10, 2017. This event could be in your church, in your home, in a retirement complex, or any meeting location you choose. It's not a complicated process, but someone needs to start the process. Can we count on you?
Christian Grandpaprenting Network (CGN) will provide you with everything you need. You will receive a step-by-step guideline manual, resources, and online tools to help you create a successful event that will engage grandparents in prayer in your church or community.
Groups of grandparents meet regularly once or twice a month for approximately an hour at designated locations for guided prayer and fellowship. These groups are called Grandparents @ Prayer (G@P).
