Countless Lives Changed by a Praying Grandmother! White-Haired Women Touching God in Prayer
“I Would not be here had She not Prayed for me,” “She Prayed me out of some Rough Situations,” “Her Prayers are the Reason for my Success,” ‘I Owe a Debt to Grammy for her Unceasing Prayers; a Debt that I can NEVER Repay”
For those of us who were blessed enough to grow up with a strong family Christian mentor, GrandMamma’s Prayers speak to all of us. GrandMamma was an outspoken matriarch who loved the Lord and loved her family enough to make sure each of them were well acquainted with Him.
This is the greatest gift you can ever possibly give, the gift of Christ. Life isn’t about how much you make or what you have, it’s all about what you have done for Christ during your short stay in this world. This point is poignantly illustrated in the life of James’s grandmother.
Integrity—Grandma was very adamant about a man having integrity in all that he stands for. If he said he was going to do something, he did it. It was known that a person’s word was just as good as signing a contract, because it meant something back then.
These days, people will laugh and lie in your face, while gently sticking a dagger in your back. What has happened to integrity, honesty and truth in family, relationships and business? I have heard tales of, and personally witnessed people stealing items, money, business ideas, and spouses. Are you serious?
We have to do a better job at valuing integrity in our relationships and in business. We can accomplish so much more if we learn to work with and not against each other.
The lesson -- Never compromise integrity for a buck.
Be the Best—Grandma wanted me to excel at everything. She felt like I should reach for the top even though I was sometimes called a nerd. What about you? Are you striving for the best or do you settle for mediocrity?
The lesson – never do less than your BEST.
GrandMamma’s Prayers is a story of faith, a story of hope and a story of perseverance. Chapters 1, 2, 3 and 4 reinforce a single truth; Christianity is more than a Sunday to Sunday experience – it is a life, a relationship and a way of living unlike anything known to man.
Chapters 5, 6 and 7 challenge readers to be more than “Church goers,” but a witness and an example of Christian life: we are to reflect the fruits of this new life in our work, our family and everything we do.
In Chapters 8, 9 and 10 we are brought face-to-face with the sometimes harsh, sometimes unfair, but always challenging disciplines of life and our responsibility to carry out the Great Commission, “. . . go ye into all the world and preach [proclaim] the Gospel . . .”
