The Christian community is being invited to send their blessings to Prince George and the Royal Family next Wednesday when the Royal baby is Christened at the Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace.
Premier Christian Radio, Britain’s largest Christian broadcaster, is asking members of the public to add their names to a giant Christening card at a special website –www.premier.org.uk/princegeorge.
More than 3,000 Christians have already added their signature to the king-sized card which will be delivered to St.James’s Palace by Premier’s CEO, Peter Kerridge, on Tuesday morning 22 October at 10-30am.
“As William and Kate make promises to bring Prince George up in the love of Jesus Christ, we know that Christians all over Britain will want to send their blessings to the Royal Family on this special occasion so we’ve made it possible for them to sign up to our unique Christening card,” says Peter Kerridge. “Current interest levels suggest that upwards of five thousand Christians will probably take part.”
The special blessing on the card, written by Premier Christian Radio’s Media Chaplain Revd Tony Miles, will read:
God of Life, we rejoice in the gift of a son to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
We prays for William and Catherine as they love and care for George Alexander Louis. Help and equip them as parents, especially as they make solemn promises before You to nurture their son in the Christian faith.
King of Kings, strengthen this family by your Holy Spirit, that they may use the privileges, opportunities, and challenges that come with their national roles, for the good of all and as a witness to Your Light.
We pray through Jesus Christ our Lord, and for the sake of Your kingdom of love and peace. Amen.
