The Baptism of Prince George - 6
THE PRAYERS (continued)
The following prayers are said
Father, we thank you that this child has now been born again of water and the Holy Spirit, and has become your own child by adoption, and a member of your Church.
Grant that he may grow in the faith in which he has been baptised;
Grant that he himself may profess it when he come to be confirmed;
Grant that he may bear witness to it by a life of service to his fellow men;
And that all things belonging to the Spirit may live and grow in him; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Almighty God, bless the home of this child, and give such grace and wisdom to all who have care for him, that by their word and good example they may teach him to know and love you; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
May almighty God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has given us new life by water and the Holy Spirit, and has forgiven all our sins, guard us by his grace now and for evermore. Amen.
