Prayer for Grandparents Prayer Heavenly Father,                                                                                                                     it is such as blessing, such a joy to have grandchildren. We love them with such passion, and know each moment spent with is of great value. Help us to only add and give into their lives. To follow the leading of their parents, but also to sow unique special seeds of love and acceptance into their hearts. Holy Spirit lead us as we prayer for them. Help us be in tune with their worries and challenges. Bless our relationship with them, that we might display your love, and lead them into the grace and freedom of your kingdom. Amen.

LAUDATO SI …May our struggles and concerns for our planet never take away the joy of our hope … God does not abandon us. He does not leave us alone… he has united himself to our earth, and his love constantly impels us to find new ways forward…’
                                                            Pope Francis – Laudato Si’ # 244
