A Prayer for Parents

alt

Baptisms on Sunday 20th September 2009

God our Father, all things are your gift to us. Father, giver of life, we thank you for the precious gift of our child. You have entrusted this child to us and we are to be the first teachers of the child in the ways of faith. May we be the best of teachers, showing our child the faith by what we say and do. We ask this in the name of Jesus, your Son. Amen.

 

A Prayer for Godparents

O Lord, help me be a good God-parent. May my friendship and prayer lovingly support this child in the years ahead. May all I do and say be an example for my God-child to follow and an inspiration for him/her in the ways of faith. May God keep us in his love. Amen.
