Blessing for Grandparents


Loving God we ask your blessing on our grandparents gathered

here today.


We thank you for their treasured gifts to their families and for the valuable links


between the past and the present passing on the family

stories and traditions.


May they be surrounded with the love, respect and support

of their families.


May they continue to be the anchor that provides stability and

a firm foundation.


May their witness to their faith guide and strengthen them and us.


Bless our grandparents with good health and kind friends.


Give them your joy and peace each day.


Thank you for their smile, love and care.


We pray this prayer in Jesus name.
