Parents Baptism Prayer
Lord, we have asked to have our child baptised. We accept the wonder and privilege of having our child brought into the Family of God and being made a child of God. As our child grows up we know we are involved in handing on the faith to our child and to value our child’s attachment to God through prayer and the sacraments and the care God will take of our child, all through life. Amen.
