A Prayer of Blessing for an Infant
O Lord Jesus Christ, son of the living God Begotten before all ages, who wished however to become an infant, who loves the innocence of childhood and did take the little ones offered to You and tenderly embrace them and bless them. Protect this infant with the blessings of Your sweetness, and grant that the forces of evil may not harm its soul. Grant that advancing in age and wisdom and grace, it may ever be pleasing to you, who liveth and reigneth with God the Father In the unity of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
