In some families, grandparents are raising their grandchildren and are doing double-duty as grandparents and parents. In other families, while they are not raising their grandchildren, they may be “involved” grandparents. I’m one of the latter type of grandparent; I’m not raising my sweet grandsons, but I am “involved” and I care very much about my grandsons and their experience at church.
- Christian grandparents can be, and often will be, your strongest prayer warriors. They understand how quickly children grow up and how time flies. They love their grandchildren and sincerely want to see them grow to be people who love, know and walk with God. Share prayer requests with them. They will be faithful prayer warriors.
- Christian grandparents can have, and often do have, great influence on their grandchildren. They can encourage and motivate their grandchildren to participate.
- Did I mention how Christian grandparents can be, and often will be, your strongest prayer warriors? Oh, yes! I did! Well, it is worth repeating because it is true!
- Christian grandparents may be very willing volunteers! They have a maturity, patience and spirit which children often will respond to very positively!
