The Sacrament of Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism

O God, our heavenly Father,
grant that this child,as grows in years, may also
grow in grace and in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ,
and that by the restraining and renewing influenceof the Holy Spirit may ever be a true child of thine,
serving thee faithfully all of his/her days.

So guide and uphold the parents of this child that by
giving care, wise counsel, and holy example,
theymay lead into that life of faith whose strength
is righteousness and whose fruit is everlasting joyand peace,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
