Prayer

My Grandma Is Praying Proverbs 16:20 For Me

“Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers,
And blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.” Proverbs 16:20
 
 
Lord, please give my grandchild an attentive ear
to those who are teaching him. Whether it be at home,
at school, or at church, give him a desire to learn—
especially truth about You. Thank You for the blessings,
that will follow if he seeks to know and trust You.
Even when he is uncertain about the best choices to make,
help him to believe that You know what is best.

 

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.
