Day 12


The Release of The SPIRIT



The Next Generation of Children


Pray for Your Grandchildren, Nieces, and Nephews


The Scriptures say much about God passing His blessing from generation to generation. The Lord declares Himself to be our “dwelling place” throughout all generations (Psalm 90:1).


This begins by praying for the salvation of our grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

Our prayers then go beyond salvation to encompass every aspect of life for this next generation. Since the day our Sons were born, Cheryl and I have prayed for spiritual protection over them, God’s call on their lives, their future spouses, and the daily details of their lives. God answered our prayer for Jonathan with Julie as his life mate.  We have prayed the same way for our grandchildren.  Children need a grandparent, and spiritual grandparents, praying over them in this way.


We place our grandchildren, nieces, and nephews in God’s hands. Some of these prayers may take a long while to be answered, but standing in faith over many years is an extremely important way of covering and supporting our families spiritually.


Pray the Scriptures:

Psalm 8:2

Matthew 18:1–5


Focus Today:

If your grandchildren, nieces, or nephews are nearby, spend time with them today and include a prayer of blessing over them. If they are at a distance, contact them and let them know you are praying for them.


Any friends with children will appreciate prayers of protection that you pray for them today.


And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 18:3)”
