It has been quite a while since we have posted here on Pass the Bread, Mom. As you know life happens and takes us in different directions. However, we still have hearts for moms, but as we have gotten older and been blessed with grandchildren, we have felt the call to encourage grammas in their God-given role as grandmothers.
Both Kay and I have become involved in Gramma Prayer Groups. Our groups have been such a blessing especially during the isolation caused by Covid. I have been a part of two groups—one a zoom group with three other women I have known for over 40 years. We actually raised our children in the same neighborhood and church. My second gramma group has been made up of four other women who have met face to face in my home. We were careful to follow Covid protocol. Each woman wore her mask, and we situated ourselves six feet apart before we removed our masks. We didn’t even drink coffee together. Well, I must admit we gave that up after about six months. We needed our coffee!
As our groups began to see God working mightily in our lives and the lives of our children and grandchildren, we begin to consider how to replicate such prayer groups, not just in our neighborhoods, but around the world. If you know a group of grammas who have a desire to lift up their children and grandchildren in fervent, God-honoring prayer to the Father, then consider gathering them into a small group (four to five) to pray. God will meet you there.
Over the past couple years, we have learned a great deal about initiating a prayer group and are glad to share with you. Now our hearts are pleading with God to ignite a fire in the hearts of grammas that spreads across our neighborhoods, our country and around the world. Would you join us?

Praying for you as you pray for them.
