Kind and loving God,
You are the font of life and all good gifts.
You have created this bundle of joy for us and
our hearts are filled with praise and thanksgiving.
Graciously bless this little one
with renewing grace
through these waters of salvation.
Made in your image, may this child know
the joy of your love and the hope only you can give.
Lord, guide this precious child to ever greater
wisdom and love of you.
Bring this child to the fullness of life
through your strength and mercy.Amen.
