Prayers for Grandsons

Prayers for Grandsons

Prayers for Grandsons are a blessing from God. As grandparents, we want to cover our grandsons in prayer, asking God to guide them and help them grow into men of strong faith and character. Here are some powerful prayers and scriptures to pray over your beloved grandsons.

Why Pray for Your Grandsons

As grandparents, we have a special role in our grandsons’ lives. We can spoil and dote on them, but more importantly, we can spiritually invest in them through prayer. Praying scripture over your grandsons is a great way to bless them. Here are some reasons to bathe your grandsons in prayer:

  • Their faith formation begins young. Praying God’s word over them can nurture a strong Christian foundation.
  • They face different challenges than previous generations. The world is changing fast. Pray for God’s protection and discernment as they grow.
  • You have more time to intercede for them. Take advantage of this season to cover them in prayer while they are young.

As Matthew 19:14 says, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs

to such as these.” Bring your grandsons before God in prayer!

More than anything, we want our grandsons to grow in faith and seek after God. Here are some prayers to help nurture their spiritual growth:

“Lord, I pray that (grandson’s name) would come to know and accept Jesus Christ as his personal Savior at a young age. Soften his heart to receive the gospel and understand salvation through faith in Christ. Protect his innocence and implant your truth in his heart.”

“God, grant (grandson’s name) wisdom beyond his years to grasp biblical truths. Open his eyes to the transforming power of your word. Give him an appetite for studying the Bible and make your word sweeter than honey to him.

“Father, surround (grandson’s name) with godly friendships and role models who will positively influence his faith. Guard his mind and heart from damaging influences that would shake his belief in you. Let him take refuge in you.”
