Prayer for grandparents

(a prayer for grandparents to say asking for wisdom and God’s blessing)

Heavenly Father,

It is such as blessing, such a joy to have grandchildren.
We love them with such passion and know each moment spent with them is of great value.
Help us to only add and give into their lives.
To follow the leading of their parents, but also to sow unique special seeds of love and acceptance into their hearts.
Holy Spirit lead us as we prayer for them. Help is be in tune with their worries and challenges.
Bless our relationship with them, that we might display your love, and lead them into the grace and freedom of your kingdom.

Prayer for family protection

(a prayer suitable for a parent to pray for the wellbeing of their children)

Lord be besides us, all every day
Guiding and leading us gently always.
Lord be above us, help us to see
The hope of the future, of all we could be.
Lord be beneath us, carry us when
We’re too shattered or tired to really have strength.
Lord be ahead of us, smoothing our paths
Protecting and blessing the places we pass.
Lord be behind us, healing our wounds,
Forgiving our mistakes and making us new.
Jesus, be within us, this family is yours
Now and forever, you are our Lord.
