Prayer for Children

O Lord Jesus Christ, who dost embrace children with the arms of Thy mercy, and dost make them living members of Thy church; give them grace, we pray Thee, to stand fast in Thy faith, to obey Thy word, and to abide in Thy love; that, being made strong by Thy Holy Spirit, they may resist temptation and overcome evil, and may rejoice in the life that now is, and dwell with Thee in the life that is to come; through Thy merits, O merciful Saviour, who with the Father and the Holy Ghost livest and reignest one God, world without end. Amen.

From the Book of Common Prayer, “Prayers and Thanksgivings”
