Bless your child with the words God used to bless John the Baptist at his baptism. (Find the words God used, in the Bible at Matthew 3:16-17).
Say your child’s name and…
You are my dearly loved son (or daughter), with whom I am well pleased. You are a child of God, who is also well pleased with you.
