Back in early 2015 I wrote a post called The Power of Prayer where I focused on a particular book by Stormie Omartian that I was reading and finding helpful (actually, I read it daily, and my book is looking rather used now!) as well as highlighting her other books for various ages and stages of life.
I’m so pleased now to talk about her recent release, The Power of a Praying® Grandparent. My parents were delighted to receive this book for Christmas from their grandsons.
Here is what the back cover says:
The Prayers of a Grandparent
Are Precious to God
Being a grandparent is one of God’s greatest gifts. And loving your grandchildren is a privilege. The best way to love your grandchildren is to pray for them. In The Power of a Praying® Grandparent, bestselling author and speaker Stormie Omartian offers powerful suggestions to help you do just that as you
- pray for your grandchildren to be healthy, protected, smart, kind, wise, godly, and obedient so that they do not stray into enemy territory
- pray for yourself to be a powerful praying Grandma or Grandpa who understands what your grandchildren are facing in this world today and how you can best cover them spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically
- pray for your grandchildren’s parents to be led and enabled by God so they can be the wisest, most patient, and loving parents for their children
Being a praying grandparent is one of the best gifts you can give your grandchildren.

The book is split into 4 sections, or areas of prayer as Stormie also calls them, so that you can more easily find the prayer topic you want for that grandchild’s need at a specific time. Each area then has 7 chapters with a prayer following each of the chapters.
I believe this is a book that is going to be greatly used by grandparents, and be a great blessing to their grandchildren.
I completely agree with Stormie when she says,
“A grandchild can never have too much prayer or too much love.”
The mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, and His righteousness to children’s children,
To such as keep His covenant, and to those who remember His commandments to do them.
