O Lord our God, Creator of heaven and earth, and our creator: we give you thanks and praise for the gift of this child… We thank you for creating him/her in your image and breathing into him/her the breath of life. We thank you for the love which her parents have for each other, and for the welcome they are giving to… By the power of the Holy Spirit, fill their home with love, trust and understanding, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
