Blessing on a Child's Name Day

God of glory,
whom we name in many ways,
when we brought this child to your Church
we were asked, "What name do you give this child?"
We answered, "N." (or: "N. N.").

May St. N. ever pray for him/her,
may he/she guard him/her
so that N. might overcome all evil
and come at last to that place
where his/her name is written in the book of life.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.
R/. Amen
