In Stata gridlines are always in the background, which fits its logic:
they are the grid on top of which the graphs are drawn. Personally, I
would not try to draw the gridlines on top, but you can with the help
of new calls to -twoway function- to draw horizontal or vertical lines
where the grid lines are. I adapted your example so I need to add both
horizontal and one vertical grid line:

*--------------------------------- begin example
---------------------------------
ssc install freduse, replace
freduse MPRIME, clear
gen ym = mofd(daten)
tsset ym, monthly
twoway                                                                    ///
function y=20.705,range(119 130) recast(area) color(gs12) base(4.7025) || ///
function y=20.705,range(166 182) recast(area) color(gs12) base(4.7025) || ///
function y=20.705,range(240 274) recast(area) color(gs12) base(4.7025) || ///
function y= 5    ,range(119 274) lstyle(grid)                          || ///
function y=10    ,range(119 274) lstyle(grid)                          || ///
function y=15    ,range(119 274) lstyle(grid)                          || ///
function y=20    ,range(119 274) lstyle(grid)                          || ///
function y=ym(1980,11), range(4.7025 20.705) horizontal lstyle(grid)   || ///
tsline MPRIME if tin(1970m1,1990m1), xlabel(,format(%tm)) lstyle(p1)      ///
legend(order(5 1 "Recession")) tlabel(,grid) scheme(s2color)
*---------------------------------- end example
