We thank you for the gift of the life of this child who is to be baptized.
May your blessing of peace and joy be with them and protect them all of their days.
We make this prayer in the name of your Son, Jesus.
Sometimes life is good and sometimes it's not.
Help us to know that you are with us in all of it.
Where we have done wrong today, forgive us;
when we have felt sad, comfort us;
where we have been afraid, strengthen us;
When we feel we've had enough
Give us strength to try again.
For we are on an amazing journey of faith,
and we know that you never leave us.
Bless this home tonight
And let your peace be known.
In Jesus name, we pray
Be with my friends tomorrow may they know joy.
Be with my family tomorrow may they know love.
Be with me tomorrow may I know peace.
Be with my child may s/he know your light
As s/he begins his/her amazing journey of faith.
Lead him/her in the right path,
Keep him/her safe
And help us all to know you are with us,
Now and always.
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
