Prayer for my Godson

O Merciful Jesus, have mercy on my godson.  Give him the grace to grow closer to you.  May he come to your Eucharist and learn to love it, as it embodies You on earth.  Please show him Your favor with gifts from the Holy Spirit.  Give him the strength to resist temptation and always serve You.  And when his journey is done, take him home to enjoy life everlasting.  I ask this through the merits of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.

Ditto for my own children.
