The Influences of Our Time

It is back to school time and our grandchildren are all in a flurry to prepare for the coming year. Some are going to kindergarten, high school, or college, and some are starting a new career. These transitions and changes can be frightening. New friends and teachers, or a new employer will have the opportunity to influence our grandchildren in a variety of ways. Peer pressure, music, movies, and games can have a powerful influence and we must rebuke that which is not of God. Let us, as praying grandmothers, surround our grandchildren with prayer for a hedge of protection to guard their minds, bodies, and souls.

Join us in praying for all of our grandchildren, the following Scriptures:

"Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; He's the One who will keep you on track." Proverbs 3:5-6 (The Message Bible).

"Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it." Isaiah 30:21 (NIV).

"When you walk, they (commands and teaching) will guide you; when you sleep, they will watch over you; when you awake, they will speak to you." Proverbs 6:22 (NIV)
