Prayers for Godparents’ Sunday

These are some prayers which may be especially suitable for Godparents’ Sunday.

For all:

Loving God,
If we are parents, help us in our daily task to build homes that are places of love, laughter and learning,
If we are godparents, help us through the years to be faithful in prayer, to listen well and grow in wisdom,
If we are grandparents, help us to encourage and support across all generations,
If we are friends, neighbours or family, may we strengthen those around us as we show kindness and care,
And may each of us reflect your great love each and every day.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.

For godchildren

Lord God,
We pray for our godchildren today
That they may grow strong in faith and love,
Discovering more of the world around them,
And exploring your great love
As they work and play and rest,
In Jesus’ name, Amen.

For godparents:

Loving God,
You call us into relationship with you and with one another.
You give us friends and family to be with us on life’s journey.
We thank you for godparents who pray for us,
listen to us, help us make good choices, and show us
more about Jesus.
Bless them on their journey of faith, and encourage them
in their prayers for the children of every age they
promised to support.
In Jesus name,

To help godchildren to pray:

Dear God,
Thank you for my godparents.
Look after them and bless them.
Help me to be kind and loving to them,
And help us together to know more of You.

To help godparents to pray:

God of light and love, thank you for the joy of being a godparent,
And the opportunities it gives us to journey with our godchildren as they grow in faith.
Keep us faithful to the promises we have made to pray for them,
and to encourage them to deepen their relationship with you.
Help us to be a prayerful, supportive and loving presence in the lives of our godchildren,
And to model to them a life rooted in you, the way, the truth and the life.
