A Baptism Prayer
For a Special Girl
This precious child
Is yours now, God,
Reborn into Your Light.
Smile down on her
With the fullness of Your love.
Touch her heart
With grace and goodness.
Enfold her in Your tender care
Today and always.
In your love
you have called us to know You,
led us to trust you,
And bound out lives with yours.
Surround this child with your love,
Protect it from evil.
Fill it with your Holy Spirit and
Receive it into the family of your church,
that it may walk with us in the way of Christ,
And grow in the knowledge of your love.
