Parent’s blessing of a child

April 27, 2011

May this child God has given us be blessed in
all she undertakes.
May she be blessed with food, clothes,
shelter and protection from the Evil one and his allies.
May she grow in wisdom and respect before God and her peers.
May she be protected from sickness, from physical harm, from
seduction, from verbal assault and from accidents.
May she grow in faith, hope, love and obedience.
May she be known as an Oak of Righteousness and Love.

-adapted from a blessing in The Blessing Book by Tim Temple as found on orderofsaintpatrick.org.
