As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the juniper,
and instead of briers the myrtle will grow.
This will be for the Lord's renown,
for an everlasting sign,
that will endure forever."
Isaiah 55:10-13
For years the Bible, New Testament, other Christian literature, Jesus Films, radio and TV broadcasts have gone out across the Arabian Peninsula. Pray for these powerful communication tools to produce salvation and righteousness in the hearts of Gulf Arabs. Pray that Jesus would be honored, worshiped and known as the life giving Son. Pray that Bibles and other Christian materials would be taken off the shelves in people's homes today. May the powerful Word of God be like rain on dry land. Pray that Gulf Arabs would understand God's Word and come to Him.

 Are you a new Baby Boomer grandparent or a grandparent looking for resources and/or suggestions to grandparent with a purpose? I am excited to share some resources and suggestions with you that will help you grandparent with a purpose.

9651007066?profile=originalFor the last five years, I have had the privilege to be the National Prayer Coordinator of Christian Grandparenting Network (CGN). CGN is devoted to challenging Christian grandparents to live intentionally as representatives of Christ for future generations. It is committed to providing a network of resources and opportunities for grandparents to have powerful opportunities for inter-generational dialogue to strengthen grandparent-grandchild relationships and spiritual growth. Go to

 As the Prayer Coordinator for CGN, I have developed two prayers cards: Scriptures to Pray for Your Grandchildren and Suggestions to Pray for Your Grandchildren in School: Preschool, Elementary, Teenagers, and College Students.        


God has also given me the opportunity to write the book 9651007270?profile=originalGRANDPARENTING WITH A PURPOSE: Effective Ways to Pray for your Grandchildren. The book challenges grandparents to stand in the gap for their grandchildren by living a godly example and being their prayer warrior. It provides creative suggestions for prayers based on Scriptures, and helpful tools, utilizing everything from cell phones to photo prayer journals. This book is available on this website.

Last year CGN proclaimed the second Sunday in September as Grandparents Day of Prayer, coinciding with National Grandparents Day designated by a Senate proclamation in 1978. It is a way of engaging grandparents to unite in an intentional day of prayer for their grandchildren. Many participants reported how they were blessed as they united in prayer with other grandparents with a common cause. There are only 31 days until the upcoming Grandparents Day of Prayer on Sunday, September 9, 2012. I want to challenge you to participate with grandparents all other the world for an intentional day of prayer for the next generations.

It has been exciting for me to invite grandparents to participate in small groups called Grandparents@Prayer (G@P) to pray for their grandchildren. Just as Esther stood in the gap for her people, the Jews, when they were threatened, likewise grandparents can stand in the gap with prayer for their grandchildren today. G@P groups are meeting in many areas of the United States and England praying together for their grandchildren on a regular basis. Anyone desiring information or would like to become a part of a group may go to the CGN website mentioned above or email me at

 A new book for grandparents, NOT ON OUR WATCH! A Call To Radical Grandparenting For Turbulent Times, written by Cavin Harper, Founder, and Executive Director of CGN, is available at

 CGN recently started a weekly radio program9651007087?profile=original Not on My Watch hosted by Cavin Harper, Executive on radio station KRDO (Colorado Springs) 105.5 FM & 1240 AM at 7:30 A.M. MST. If you would like to listen to my recent interview on the radio program on June 17, or the other weekly programs go to podcast link.

 CGN also provides many other resources for grandparents such as weekly blogs on their website by Cavin Harper, and me, GrandCamps in Colorado, mission trips for grandparents and grandchildren, seminars, and conferences for grandparents.

 I enjoy my grandchildren very much and God has given me a passion to intentionally pray for my grandchildren, especially in the moral and spiritually deprived world we live in today. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to be a part in a grandparenting ministry to influence our future generations for Jesus Christ.
