5 I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also. 2 Timothy 1:5
Every culture should have praying grandmothers. I recall stories in the old Soviet Union where grandmothers would pray pastors out of prison or their grandkids into the faith. No law or man can stop them. They live for their children and grandchildren. When they’re not enjoying them face to face, they’re lifting them up to the Father. Timothy obviously experienced something like this. We know nothing about Lois or Eunice for that matter. We do know they prayed and passed on their faith.
How I wish all grandmothers were like Lois. Fearless. Relentless. Faithful. Wise. I had a grandmother-figure who prayed me into the Kingdom. She told me as much.
But why do you need to be a grandmother to pray someone into the Kingdom? Begin right now. Then when those younguns are mature enough, you can tell them what you did for them. Or it’ll be your little secret. But it begins now. Today.
