Becoming a grandparent is one of the most amazing and exciting moments everyone looks up to. Especially when you feel like your child grew like a magic bean and now is going to become a parent.
Out of many things, the feeling of expecting your grandchild will leave you anxious, nervous, excited, full of fear and happy at the same time.
You should know that these feelings are very natural, and they can tend to overwhelm us especially if the delivery date of your grandchild is fast approaching.
As a grandparent, one of the things you should do is pray for the safe delivery of your grandchild.
As you say these prayers, believe in God that he will answer all of them and wait and see how God will bring your little angel into this world with his lovely hands.

I am confident that with You, my grandchild will be delivered safely, in good health and with a sound mind. Thank You Father for answering my prayers. Amen.”
Handing both the mother and child to God is a great thing to do because we know that whenever you leave anything in God’s hands, it flourishes and does not Perish.
Committing your soon-to-be-born grandchild and mother is you telling God that you have confidence in him that your grandchild will be delivered safely.
