The God Parent’s Prayer

 (For baby blessings)

by The Rev Anthea Ballam

The child that feels the wind
The child that hears the sound of the waves
The child that is radiant in the light of the sun
The child that is touched by the perfection of the moon –
Is truly blessed.

Little one,
You are adored and nurtured by your parents
People of love and gentleness
You are loved and admired by your grandparents
But you and you alone
Are my godchild
And I have been entrusted with this role.
And it is with respect
To all things sacred
That I will follow your steps
And spiritual pathways
Committing myself
To you –
And the wishes of your parents
And the beloved spirit
That is the mother of all things
And the father of all things
That brought you here and now.
Blessed Be
