Confirmation Letter or Speech For Nephew Or Niece

 

Do You Want To Write A Unique, Hearfelt And Heavenly-Inspired Confirmation Letter Or Speech To Your Nephew or Niece?

 

Not too how to start or wondering if you are on the right track?

 

Just follow the ides and tips here and you will be seconds away from doing so quickly and easily!

 

Isn’t God so good?

 

You’ll agree with me that the mercies and blessings of God never ceases because they are new every morning.

 

That explains why every now and then, you have to count your blessings and name them one by one as doing that daily will not only strengthen your faith but remind you of the faithfulness of God.

 

Joshua did just that when he gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem and called for the elders of Isreal, their heads, their judges, their officers and presented themselves before the almighty God! (Joshua 24)

 

After speaking at length about God’s blessings to their ancestors and how he defended them, he implored the people to fear God and serve him in sincerity and truth.

 

He goes on to tell them that they have to choose whom they will serve: the God of heaven or foreign as he and his household will serve Jehovah God almighty.

 

His admonition brings to mind what the scripture says concerning raising and training up children in the way of the Lord so they don’t depart from it when they grow older.(Proverbs 22:6)

 

You see, God sees us as his children and he expects you to see and treat every child as one of your own and that includes your nephew or niece. If you are doing just that then God will be well pleased with you.

 

By the way, since you want to make sure your nephew or niece grows up into a person of faith, I know for sure you are helping prepare him or her in your own way for sacrament of confirmation.

 

Is This The Best Confirmation Gift Ever?

 

One of the best ways is ensuring your nephew or niece stays rooted in the faith is by writing a divinely-inspired letter to him or her when he or she is at the confirmation retreat or give a beautiful speech at their confirmation party.

 

To do that you have to come up with good ideas to help you say what’s on your heart.

 

But, as you are well aware, the right words for your letter or speech is hard to find.

 

The good news is that I want to help you get the right words easily and quickly as I have been helping people to write and give speeches for some time and I do know for sure what goes into writing such letters or speeches.

 

Guess what?

 

The first thing you have to do if you want to come up with something great is

 

To Talk To Your Best Friend About Your Confirmation Letter or Speech For Your Niece Or Nephew!

 

The Holy Spirit is your greatest source of inspiration because he’s the source of all wisdom and knowledge and I am simply amazed why so many people don’t talk to him when they have worries.

 

There is no way I write any speech or letter without asking him to help me out and he does that beautifully at all times.

 

So, it doesn’t matter if you feel you are a writer or not, just go on your knees right now and invite him over and he will be right there to make your work so much easier!

 

Invite him to be your guide and helper every step of the way, and he will never let you down!

 

The second thing you have to do if you want to come up with something great is...

 

To Listen To Heaven’s Sweet Melodies

 

What I mean is that you should listen to heavenly-centered and use the lyrics to put down whatever is on your heart.

 

Let’s see a few of these songs and then look at how we can use the lyrics to write a short and very inspiring piece.

  1. Make me a channel of your peace
  2. Amazing Grace How Sweet The Sound
  3. How Sweet The Name Of Jesus Sounds
  4. When Peace Like A River
  5. A Charge to Keep I Have
  6. Be Still And Know that I am God
  7. Christ Be With Me
  8. Fight the Good Fight
  9. My God Accept My Heart This Day
  10. Take My Life And Let It Be
  11. The Lord's Shepherd

 

Now, let’s use the lyrics of the songs: Take my life and let it as well as Fight the Good Fight of Faith to pen down something!

 

Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee

Take my moments and my days
Let them flow in ceaseless praise

Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love
Take my feet and let them be swift and beautiful for Thee

Take my voice and let me sing always, only, for my King
Take my lips and let them be filled with messages from Thee

Take my silver and my gold, not a mite would I withhold
Take my intellect and use every power as
It's all you now - spoken

 

Fight the good fight with all thy might.
Christ is thy strength and Christ thy right.
Lay hold on life, and it shall be
thy joy and crown eternally.

Run the straight race through God's good grace;
lift up thine eyes, and seek Christ's face.
Life with its way before us lies;
Christ is the path, and Christ the prize.

 

Now, Here’s A Short Example Based on the Words of That Song.

 

Janet, God has always had his own plan for you right from the time you were born.

 

This is because when you were born, we came very excited and I remember Eleanor placing you in the crib.

 

There and then, granny’s bible fell onto the floor and when I bend down to pick it off the floor, I saw the bible had on its own opened to the book of Jeremiah 29:11 which reads: I know the plans I have for you. Plans to bring you to an expected end

 

It was as if God was telling me that you were such a special child and he would be looking out for you every step of the way.

 

Over the years, we have seen you grow into a very beautiful and our prayer has always been that you live a life fully consecrated to God.

 

Today, we heard you express your desire to serve God all the days of your life even as the priest prayed for you so you could be well-quipped by the Holy Spirit to fight the good fight of faith….

 

Did you notice how we used the underlined words: fully consecrated to God…Holy Spirit to fight the good fight of faith

 

Well, the third thing you have to do if you want to come up with some encouraging words is...

 

To Look Over A Few Poems

 

Poems on the theme of church confirmation, Holy Spirit, holiness, trusting in the Lord, long suffering, blessings and steadfast can really help you out.

 

All you have to do is to go find such poems in the search engines and then borrow a few lines to help you write your confirmation letter or speech for your niece or nephew.

 

The fourth thing you have to do if you want to come up with some inspiring words is...

 

To Go Get The Best Book Ever!

 

The bible has virtually everything you need to help you express your exact thought and emotions.

 

Let me ask you this, do you study it daily? If so, what lessons do you learn from studying God’s word? And do you apply those lessons learned to your own life?

 

Any changes in your life as a result of walking in the light of God’s word?

Just as you know, every scripture is inspired by God and it is useful for rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so you need to get key verses from it that will not only inspire your nephew or niece every step of the way, but also his daily walk of love with his maker.

 

By the way, Here are some verses you can use:

 

I Timothy 6:12

 

Fight the good fight of faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

 

Philippians 3:12-14

12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

 

Phillipians 4:8

 

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honorable, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

 

Psalm 119:11 King James Version

 

Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

 

Ephesians 6:10-18

 

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

 

12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

 

13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

 

14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,

 

15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

 

16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

 

17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

 

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

 

Romans 5:3-5

 

3. Not only that, but we rejoice in our suffereings, knowing that sufferung produces endurance

4. and endurances produces character, and character produces hope,

5. and hope does not put to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

 

Do you think any of those verses can help us come up with something meaningful?  I think so!

Well, can you give it a try? If you can’t, then I will help you out

once again.

 

By the way, let’s use the following verse to come up with what’s on my mind.

 

I Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith.

 

Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

 

Here we go:

 

Michele, the beauty about your confirmation is that God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to you and us all.

What that means is that, from this moment on, you have to fight a good fight of faith.

Scripture tells us that by putting on the whole armor of God you can stand against all the tricks of the devil.

As you walk with the Lord, you will go through valleys of despair and hopelessness sometimes and that might make you wonder if God is still there for you.

You know what? God sometimes allow these things to come into your lives so he can test your faithfulness.

So, whenever, you feel downhearted, just know that God is still closer than anyone will.

With that in mind, your faith will be renewed and you will press on toward your heavenly goal of making more disciples for Christ Jesus!

I hope you noticed how we used the underlined words:… you have to fight a good fight of faith to construct that short example!

 

The fifth thing you have to do if you want to come up with some inspiring words is...

 

Just Answer These 7 Questions And Your Ideas Will Flow In No Time!

 

Sit down a moment with a note pad and paper handy and ask yourself these questions.

  1. How was my confirmation day like?
  2. How was the preparation like?
  3. Do I still have any of those letters you got from your sponsor or mentor, parents (mom and dad), friends, and well-wishers?
  4. Did I experience any set-back?
  5. If so, how did you overcome all those challenges?
  6. How did your participation in that sacrament guide your whole life from that moment on?

 

Next, put down your answers and back them up with stories in well-developed paragraphs.

 

Now, this is what you have to do afterwards. Go over your work paragraph by paragraph and see ideas you want to get rid of and those you don’t want to touch.

 

Keep on doing that till you are completely happy with how you have developed your points.

 

By telling your journey in the faith using personal anecdotes, it will give the communicant a sense of hope and purpose when he or she goes through life and he or she can make it through no matter what life throws at him or her.

 

The sixth thing you have to do if you want to come up with some inspiring words is...

 

To Pick The Brain Of These Sage

 

Most folks prefer to use quotes from the lips or minds of some of these wise men and women!

 

Not only will they make your piece witty, but they can be used for the body of your confirmation letter or speech to your niece or nephew.

 

Below are a few examples you can use to enrich your message:

  1. “In him you also, when you had heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and had believed in him, were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit.” — St. Paul
  2. “Remember, then, that you received a spiritual seal, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of knowledge and reverence, the spirit of holy fear. Keep safe what you received. God the Father sealed you, Christ the Lord strengthened you and sent the Spirit into your hearts as the pledge of what is to come.— St. Ambrose
  1. “I wish not merely to be called Christian, but also to be Christian.”— St. Ignatius of Antioch
  1. “It is better to be a child of God than king of the whole world.”— St. Aloysius Gonzaga
  1. “But it is God who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us, by putting his seal on us and giving us his Spirit in our hearts as a first installment.”— St. Paul

 

I have tried as much as possible to show you how to use such comments to write your own ideas and I guess you wouldn’t have any problem doing that with the above quotations right?

 

I believe you can so please give it a whirl!

Consult Free Confirmation Speech or letter Samples for your niece or nephew.

 

You can simply save precious time and not put yourself under any undue stress and pressure if you get access to some good confirmation letter examples for your nephew or niece.

Here’s a good (yet brief one) sample to study by Sarah Reinhard

 

Dear Ree,

 

There are some who will tell you that you’re now an adult in the eyes of the Church.

 

There’s also an underlying expectation that you’re “done” now that you’re confirmed.

 

Though there’s truth in both of those, I hope you don’t fall for the misleading lies beneath them both.

 

You are an adult, in that you have received both of the Sacraments of Initiation, Baptism and Confirmation.

 

You are a full-fledged member of the Body of Christ, and what was started in your Baptism when you were a wee baby has been fulfilled by the full gifts of the Holy Spirit in Confirmation.

 

Your formal classes in religious education might be finished, but don’t let go of the desire to learn.

 

There’s no shortage of information available to you in the last 2000-plus years of our Christian faith, but even more, don’t hesitate to continue to try to learn to be close to God.

 

As the bishop told you at your Confirmation Mass, don’t forget your dignity. You’ll be challenged many times in your life to let this slide: don’t give in.

 

Being confirmed, many years ago, used to be seen as being accepted into an army. Grammy said she was called a “soldier for Christ.”

 

You are part of that army now, and it’s a very real war that’s going on, many times beneath the noses of people who would rather ignore the important issues in favor of what’s convenient and easy.

 

You will face difficult choices in the years to come. Do not ever be afraid to turn to God and, as you shake your fist at him, throw yourself into his arms.

 

 

Here’s what you have to do now!

 

Look over the example I have just provided again and see if there are themes or ideas that resonate with what you have in mind.

 

Now, change a few things here and there and make it your own as it’s in the voice of another writer.

 

Here’s how I would have made changes to this section of Sarah’s letter if I were in your shoes.

 

Sarah’s version:

 

Dear Ree,

There are some who will tell you that you’re now an adult in the eyes of the Church.

There’s also an underlying expectation that you’re “done” now that you’re confirmed.

 

My version:

 

Dear Ree,

It is not an easy thing to make it thus far in life. All you are and all you will be is just by the grace of God!

To some you are still a young person, but in the eyes of God, you are like a prince because you are his servant destined to carry the message of the cross by your daily words and actions…

Hope that gave you a sense of what to do.
