The Church of England has designation 1 May 2016 as the first Godparent Sunday. There are some great resources for this at:
I wanted a prayer for Godparents to take away with them to help them pray for their new godchild.
I couldn’t find one. There are fridge magnets etc, but I just wanted a prayer.
There are prayers on the website, but they are meant for corporate, liturgical use. They are “we” not “I” prayers.
So I wrote a prayer, and I will test it out with tomorrow’s godparents.
Here it is. You are welcome to use it. No charge, but feedback would be helpful.
Prayer for my Godchild
I pray for (godchild) today,
That he/she may thrive and do well,
and grow up full of faith and love.
As he/she explores his/her world,
may he/she come to know
how much You love him/her.
Help me to play my part
in praying for him/her,
and looking out for him/her,
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
