Prayers for a Baby
Prayers for a baby are a way for parents, friends, and loved ones to express their love, care, and concern for a new life that has just entered the world. They can be a source of comfort and support for the parents as they navigate the joys and challenges of parenthood, and they can also be a way to ask for blessings and guidance for the child as they grow and develop. Whether you are a parent seeking guidance and support, or a friend or loved one looking for ways to offer your love and encouragement, these prayers can provide a sense of connection and hope as you navigate the beauty and wonder of raising a child.
We will print and place your prayer request on the Stone of Anointing; the place where Christ’ body was laid down after being removed from the crucifix and prepared for burial.
