Hey, moms and grandmoms. This time of year is one of transition—back to school, off to college, beginning work—and with it comes anxiety.
Yet, prayer can relieve the stress for all involved. That’s why I’ve created this journal of prayer prompts for mothers and grandmothers.
May the Lord show his constant love during the day, so that I may have a song at night, a prayer to the God of my life. Psalm 42:8 (GNT)
Prayer is a priceless gift you can give to your children and grandchildren. Your prayers will have a lasting effect beyond your days on earth.
To help you pray for your children and grandchildren, I have adapted prayers from my mother’s prayer journal. She passed away in 2010, but she left behind the gift of her prayers for my children, my siblings and their children, and myself.
I have adapted her prayers for you to use for your own family.
My mother and my grandmother taught me the importance of praying for my own family. However, I have developed my own way of praying. I like prayer to be practical. Instead of writing in a journal, I combine my first-thing-in-the-morning praying for my children with physical stretching. Be inspired by this video.

Whatever works best for you, today, pray big for your children and grandchildren.
