Help them to be faithful in prayer. Give them a good listening ear. So grant them, the Spirit of encouragement, as well as strength, care and kindness. Let their lives be an example to their God child, Amen.

Dear Lord, Proverbs 22:6, declares, train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Heavenly Father, being a God parent can be a very daunting responsibility. But Your Word says, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. So, Lord we pray that you will give strength to every God parent in Jesus Name.. I also pray, that they will not fear because Your Word says do not fear for I am with you.

Let this God parent and God child relationship be built on foundations of love, as well as Your guidance and Word. Lord we ask all of this in Your Name, Amen.
