Praying "Hands"

If you have been reading grandma's cookie jar, it does not take long to realize I care very much about passing on a heritage of faith to the three sweet rascals God has blessed my life with - otherwise known as my three grandsons! It also does not take long to see I care about praying for them. I know God hears, listens to, and answers our prayers - it is the most powerful thing we can do for our loved grandchildren. So, when I found the following idea on Pinterest I knew I had to share it with you, because it is one of the best ideas I've found anywhere!

Just follow this link for the details, but basically you need to trace the hands of each of your grandchildren. Then ask God for a verse you can pray for each grandchild for the coming year; write this verse on their handprint. Put the handprints in your Bible or where you will see them each day and then use them to pray Scripture for your grandchildren all year long.

There is nothing more powerful or important which we as grandmas can do for our grandchildren than to entrust them into God's hands . . . there is no better place for them! As much as we as grandmas love our grandchildren, God loves them infinitely more! Praying Scripture for each grandchild is powerful - God's Word is powerful and does not return void to us! Selecting a specific Scripture verse for each grandchild, writing it on their handprint and praying it for them each day is most certainly, one of the best ideas I've found anywhere!
