Prayers for Grandchildren’s Protection
Prayer for Grandchildren’s Safety
Dear God, my grandchildren are out of sight, but I think of them all the time.
Are they eating well? Are they healthy? Are they being treated well in school or at work?
When they were little, I could be with them when I wanted, but now that they’re bigger, I can’t be where they are.
I worry because the world has grown cruel, and I am not there to protect them.
God, please keep my grandchildren safe. I can only do so much, so I leave their safety to you, Lord.
I know you are watching over them, beside them when they need you.
I pray that you keep them away from trouble, from accidents, from sickness, and from any misfortunes.
I may not be there with them physically, but I know that You are in spirit.
Thank you for your undying love for my grandkids, God, and thank you for giving me peace when I pray to you.
Whenever I pray and ask you to keep them safe, I always feel calm and peaceful because I know that You will.
Thank you, Lord. Amen.
Psalm 34:7The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, And rescues them.
Prayer to Saint Anne, the Holy Patron Saint of Grandchildren
Lord, I invoke the protection of Saint Anne, mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus. As the Holy Patron of grandmothers and grandchildren, I feel a strong connection to Saint Anne as I am a grandparent. I pray to you, God, to help me call on Saint Anne to shower me and my grandkids with the love and blessings we need in this time of uncertainties and chaos.
More and more evil is coming into the world, and I am afraid my grandchildren are exposed to these evils daily. I can see it in social media, in school, and everywhere around them. I pray that Saint Anne covers my grandkids with the blanket of safety and protection, giving them the strength and armor they need to ward off any evil temptations or attacks towards them.
Through Saint Anne, I pray that you bestow my grandkids the protection they need to keep safe, healthy, and happy in these trying times. Amen.
Proverbs 18:10The name of the Lord is a strong tower The righteous runs into it and is safe.
Prayer of Protection Against Grandkids Going Astray
Dear God, before I sleep tonight, I want to pray to thank you for giving me the gift of being a grandparent. You already gave me children, and giving me a grandkid was a gift I didn’t know I deserved, so thank you for filling a part of me I didn’t know was empty.
While I am grateful I get to love my grandkids, I worry about the world they live in. They are exposed to drugs, temptations, and progressive thoughts that I fear are making them distance themselves from You.
Though their parents tried their best to raise them in Your way, the truth of the matter is it has taken a village to raise them, and some things are beyond our control. So now I am praying to You, God, to protect my grandkids from going astray. Please help me to remind them that they must remain obedient to Your word. They must remain fearful of Your wrath, and they must remain to be faithful to Your grace.
Please give them the courage to say no to things that are not good for them and to choose ways that keep them closer to You, God. Please keep them kind, loving, merciful, and loyal to you, God. Amen.
Isaiah 41:10Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Prayer to Keep a Grandchild Pure and Innocent
Lord God, my grandchildren, are good Christians, and because of this, they are constantly bombarded with evil temptations, spiritual attacks, and the jealous evil eye. Yet, they stay steadfast in their belief and faith. They continue to worship, study Your Word, and devote their time to practicing good deeds.
However, I also know the Devil is strong, and when the Devil wants to destroy something good, he is relentless. And so, God, I pray today that you also make my grandchildren strong and courageous. Develop in them the strongest convictions of the Christian values I have instilled in their parents and their parents have instilled in them. Teach them to be faithful to your commandments and always remind them of your love, guidance, and protection.
With your presence in everything they do, I know you will protect them from all forms of evil thoughts and activities. Thank you, God, and Amen.
Thessalonians 3:3But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.
Prayer to Protect My Grandkids from Feeling Alone
Lord, I kneel before you to keep my grandchildren company. As they are getting older, they are gradually growing away from us. They now have their own lives, work, and find their place in the world.
I have been in their place, and I have felt alone so many times. When they get rejected, please remind them that You have plans for them and that they shouldn’t worry. When they don’t get what they want in life, please remind that your plans are bigger than their plans, so, they should trust that You are working their success for them and that you are preparing their happiness.
When they experience loss, despair, and deep sadness, please remind them they can come to You. Please remind them that You are their refuge and sanctuary. Please remind them that you are their strength, and they shouldn’t be angry, resentful, and hate You or the world. Please remind my grandkids that they are not alone. You are always there for them, waiting for them to come to You.
Please, God, protect my grandkids from feeling alone. Please remind them that the safest place they can be is with Jesus, So when they start feeling like the world is against them, please call on them to call on You because you are all we need. Amen.
