Honestly, life can get scary sometimes. We wish to keep our dear ones closer and safer all the time, but it’s beyond us. The above prayer can truly summon God’s love to protect and bless your grandchildren.

After all, He is always watching over them, even if you don’t pray for them. After praying, speak Psalm 121:5-8 into their lifes:

Being a grandparent comes with a special kind of love and concern for the carriers of your legacy.

You must have heard the joke that grandparents are immeasurably fond of their grandkids, right? It’s because of the bond and happiness of seeing your subsequent generations. 

So, how can you stand by them apart from the weekend visits, long video calls, outings, and signature dishes? Prayer is the most meaningful way to show your grandbabies love, care, and thoughtfulness.

Remember to throw in some powerful scriptures to reinforce the intercession, like Psalm 91 or smaller ones like:

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” — Isaiah 41:10.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” — Jeremiah 29:11.

Safety remains a great concern for everyone on the entire planet because there have been so many risks lately.

As a grandparent, it’s expected to be worried about your grandkids’ safety, especially if you live so far from one another. Your prayers can protect them from all harm despite the distance in between

Declare 2 Peter 3:18 upon their lives that they may develop in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus to whom belongs the eternal glory.

“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen. — 2 Peter 3:18.

Blessings are what keep us going! You may not make it across many phases of life if you don’t seek the Lord’s favor.

The above is a short prayer to speak blessings upon your grandchildren today. When praying, remember not to concentrate only on their current life but seek God’s grace for their future as well. 

A grandparent’s devotion to their grandbabies can go a long way in attracting success, comfort, peace, and love in their existence.

Again, there’s no specific age to stay interceding for them. In fact, you should start praying for your grandkids long before they’re born and do it even more after once they arrive.

Before you leave, save these prayers for your grandson.

Can I Use These Prayers for Any Request?

Absolutely! You can use the above prayers to address any request regarding your grandchildren.

May it be their families, careers, health, profession, love life, goals, investments, and anything else- nothing should be left out

Just keep your intentions pure as you intercede, and the Lord of Hosts will grant your desires. Most importantly, ensure you have faith in the Lord despite what request you are praying about.

As Jesus tells us in John 11:40, just believe, and you will see the glory of God

What is the Best Day to Pray These Prayers?

Every day is the best day! The Lord never limits what days you can pray to Him about your grandchildren. In fact, you can not only pray daily but do it several times in a single day whenever they click into your mind. 

You just have to remain consistent with the prayers even if your grandkids stay on the other side of your neighborhood. Furthermore, you can always video call and pray with them, strengthening your relationship with them and their faith in God. 


Prayers for your grandchildren are the only way to seek blessings and protection. If you haven’t been interceding for yours, this is a signal to get started today and remain consistent to testify a significant transformation in their lives. 

While you pray, do not forget about general coaching, which is equally important in their growth and development.

Teach them the Word of God, the virtues of Christianity, the Ten Commandments, respect for elders, time management, health matters, good manners, and any other life lessons.
