Need a collection of blessings for babies. Don't need to be religious. I have an Apache one which is lovely but can't find any more. Any help would be much appreciated.

I can probably find some religious ones, if you want them - do you like ancient or modern?

I have some nice ones from the Northumbria community which I could type out for you later if you like (Celtic Christian).

i have this prayer on my wall...

beloved lord almighty god

through the chains of all masters
through the guides of all angels and children

place our feet firmly on the path of light
illuminate our minds
purify our hearts
and fill us with joy

that we may be clear channels for our children

thee's a lovely reading about children in The Prophet - Kahil Gibran (not overtly religious but still spiritual)

third verse of "Away in a manger" (DSs' bedtime prayer smile)

can;t think of any more off hand

How about this:

Before you were conceived, I wanted you
Before you were born, I loved you
Before you were here an hour, I would die for you
This is the miracle of love.

Need to trawl my books when I get chance...

Dont know if it counts as a blessing but i always sing the following to DD at night

Jesus tender shepherd hear me
Bless thy little lamb tonight
Through the darkness be thou near me
Keep me safe till morning light

There are other verses but I dont know them sorry
