Application: Demonstrate the concept of trust by blindfolding your grandchild and leading him into a different room. Explain that this is similar to our need to trust God as He leads us. Say, “If you can trust me to guide you, think how much more you can trust your heavenly Father, who made you, and who has promised never to leave you.”
This prayer suggestion is used by permission from “My Grandmother is. . . praying for me” by Kathryn March, Pamela Ferris, and Susan Kelton. They are three ordinary grandmothers desiring to pray for the next generation to become men and women of strong character and great faith. They have a verse from the Proverbs, a prayer for the verse and an application for each day of the year. I have found the book an excellent resource for praying from my grandchildren, especially for character development. You may order the book from their website: www.mygrandmotheris.com.
