A Grandparent’s Prayer
Dear God, thank you for the gift of the grandchildren You have entrusted to me.
(Here mention by name.)
I pray that in Your mercy, You watch over and protect them each and every day, just as You have always done for me. May their lives be long, healthy and blessed with happiness. Grant them gifts of treasured dreams and hopes that will provide them with both the roots of tradition and growth, as well as the wings of creativity and expression.
I pray that my words of wisdom, praise and encouragement may stay with them long after my time here is completed. May they look back upon my years with them as times of fond memories, and may they never forget that they were, are, and always will be deeply loved by You and by me. Amen.
