Praying "Hands"

The mom picked a scripture for each child that she prayed over them for an entire year. She traced their hand, wrote the scripture on it, laminated it, and placed it in her Bible. Must do. Now.Over the almost two years I've been writing grandma's cookie jar I've shared a lot of crafts with you. Today I have a "craft", but it is so much more. I found this idea on Pinterest and 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 child for the coming year; write this verse on the handprint of each child. 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!
