7 Uplifting Prayers for Grandkids

1 John 5:14
Dear Lord, I pray for a divine covering over my grandchild/grandchildren. I pray that Your light and love never leaves his/her side. May Your angels protect him/her from the plans of the enemy, and I ask that good things will manifest in his/her life such as love, prosperity, peace and courage. I thank You for hearing me, because if I ask anything according to Your will, it will be granted in Jesus’ name, Amen.

1 Timothy 4:12
Dear Father, I pray that my grandchildren know how valuable and important they are because they have been handpicked by You. I pray against self-doubt because of how young they are. I declare that no one will despise them because they are a youth, but they will be an example to all believers through what they say and do in their love, faith and purity. May my grandchildren be a light (reflecting Your light) to those around them, this we pray, Amen.

Colossians 3:20-21
Dear Lord, I pray that my grandchildren obey their parents in all things for this pleases You. I ask that their relationships with their parents will be God-centered at all times. Help parents to not provoke their child/children, but instead nurture and challenge them through love, in the same love You have shown unto us; this is the prayer of my heart, Amen.

Proverbs 15:5-6
Dear God, Your Word says that a fool despises his father’s instruction, but he who receives correction is prudent. Lord, I pray that my grandchildren understand that their parent’s discipline is for their benefit for only a fool despises a parent’s discipline. Help my grandchildren to learn from their correction and grow in their wisdom. I pray over their household for there is treasure in the house of the righteous but the earnings of the wicked bring trouble, Amen.

Genesis 31:55
Dear Lord, I thank You that my grandchildren are a gift from You and I pray that Your goodness and mercy will follow them for all the days of their life. Father, just as Laban kissed his grandchildren and blessed them, I pray that Your blessings will rain down on every area of life my grandchildren experience. Lord thank You for allowing me to watch them grow into beautiful individuals; thank You Lord, Amen.

Isaiah 59:21
Oh God, I thank You for the generational blessings You have given Your people. Your Word says that Your Spirit will not leave Your people and that Your Words will be on the lips of children and their children’s children forever. I thank You for the blessings that You have allowed to transcend to my grandchildren. May they remain blessed and highly favored; this is the prayer of my heart, Amen.

James 1:17
Dear Father, my grandchildren are a gift from You because every good and perfect gift is from You. I thank You for their lives and pray that they too experience Your divine blessing in abundance; let this blessing be ‘double-fold’ in Jesus’ name. So, I pray that Your light will follow them wherever they may go. This is the prayer of our heart and ask that You bless them indefinitely in Jesus’ name, Amen.
