9 Best Prayers For My Grandchildren

Entrusting your grandchildren to the Lord is best achieved by placing them in the forefront of your prayers. This collection of best prayers for my grandchildren serve as the perfect example to the types of prayers you can recite to ensure their safety and security.

Prayer #1

Lord, I pray for my grandchildren. I ask that You would put Your hand of protection upon them. Keep them safe from accidents or dangers of any kind. Surround them with Your angels. I know that “You alone” can make them to “dwell in safety” (Psalm 4:8). Help them to understand that You are their protector, and You can keep them safe when they live Your way and seek Your hand of protection. Enable them to see that when they go their own way, without regard for Your way, they walk out from under Your umbrella of protection. In Jesus’ name I pray.

Prayer #2

Dear Loving Lord, how grieved I am that my precious grandchild whom I love so dearly has chosen to walk away from you and to seemingly forge a future without God in their life.

Lord You know that this dear grandchild has been taught the truth of Scripture from the cradle and has been covered in pray from many quarters – even before being born. And Lord, You know that as a child they were taught the truth of the Lord Jesus and even made a commitment at an early age to accept You as their Saviour… Father it grieves and saddens me and I plead with You to intervene in their life and bring them back to You..

Father I know that nothing can snatch Your little lambs from Your hands or Your Father’s hands –and I trust You Lord, that You will keep Your hand upon my grandchild so that they return into Your loving arms of forgiveness….

Thank You Lord that even we become careless and unfaithful to You- You never give up on us.. Lord I trust the future of my grandchild into YOUR hands and pray that whatever it takes – You would draw them back into the way of truth, in Jesus name I pray,
Amen

Prayer #3

May my grandchildren, like Jesus, grow in wisdom (mental) and stature (physical), and in favor with God (spiritual) and men (social). May they live lives worthy of you, Lord, and may they please you in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of you.

Prayer #4

Thank you, Lord, that you will command your angels concerning my grandchildren and guard them in all their ways.

Prayer #5

I pray, Lord, that you will deliver my grandchildren from wicked and evil people. May you strengthen and protect them from the evil one. May your favor, O Lord God, rest upon my grandchildren; establish the work of their hands for them.

Prayer #6

Thank you, heavenly Father, that you are not willing that any of my grandchildren should be lost. I trust that each one will become a believer in you. I thank you in advance that they will become believers in you. I pray that they will be taught by you and that great will be their peace.

Prayer #7

Loving heavenly Father, Thank You for the gift of my precious children and what a privilege it is to see my grandchildren growing up and learning about You. Thank You Father for each little life and I lift each one up to You Lord, and pray that by Your grace and love You would surround them with Your love, throughout their lives.

Guard and guide them all I pray and uphold and protect them. May each one come to know You Lord as their personal Saviour and may they all come to a deep understanding of all You are and all that You have done for them – Oh Lord I pray most earnestly that each one would accept You into their hearts and lives as their Lord and Saviour.

I pray that as they grow into their teens and become young adults that You would keep their hearts and minds turned to You and trusting in Jesus, for their every need. Protect each one from the philosophies and mindset of the world that are so contrary to the truth of Scripture and may each one grow in grace and become strong in their faith as they develop in wisdom and discernment.

Protect them from the evils of this age, keep them from temptations and help them to live godly lives and to develop as responsible adults who will teach their own children the wonderful truth of Salvation through Christ Jesus our Lord,
Amen

Prayer #8

Dear heavenly Father, thank You for the lives of each of my lovely grandchildren that You have so graciously brought into my life – and which give me such joy and pleasure – for which I praise and thank You.

Lord You have scheduled every day of their lives and I pray that as they grow up into adulthood You would continue to lead and guide – to instruct and to correct. Father I also pray that You would develop in each one a heavenly perspective and a true understanding of the Christian life and spiritual maturity so that they grow in grace and in a right relationship with You.

Bring the right spouse into the life of each of these dear grandchildren of mine I pray. In Your grace I pray that they be granted the husband or wife of Your choice, so that together they may become a threefold cord with You – which is not easily broken..

Thank You Lord so much for every one of my grandchildren…Into YOUR hands I commit each one and may they sense Your calling on their lives, so that they develop into mighty men and women who love You deeply and trust in You implicitly, in Jesus name I pray, Amen.

Prayer #9
