As you should probably know (unless you were hiding in a very big hole!), Her Royal Highness, Princess Charlotte was born 12 days ago, on Saturday 2nd May.
To celebrate the birth of Her Royal Highness, Princess Charlotte, we thought it might be fitting to share the prayer for ‘Charlotte’ from Reverend Andrew Tawn’s Naming and Blessing: A Book of Name Prayers.
A collection of personalised name prayers for more than 500 baby names, it’s perfect for christening readings or for parents wanting to pray for their child at any stage in their life.
Caring God, walk with Charlotte,
Heal her when she is hurt,
Accompany her when she is lonely,
Rescue her when she is in trouble,
Lead her when she is lost,
Overcome every obstacle,
Teach her your way,
Travelling with her
Every step of life’s journey.
Some reviews for Naming and Blessing: A Book of Name Prayers…
“A collection of prayers which can be used so very easily and readily by a much wider range of people than simply the committed Christian.”
Bishop David Hope, former Archbishop of York
“Throughout life we receive many gifts but our name is one of the first and most precious gifts we receive…The author uses the ancient device of the acrostic to create unique and thoughtful meditations on the names of the children he has baptised.”
Anthony Russell, former Bishop of Ely
“This is a gift with many layers, unpacking the meaning of individual names and weaving into each prayer a gentle yet profound affirmation of the connection of each unique individual to God.”
Angela Ashwin, author of ‘The Book of a Thousand Prayers’
