Confirmation Speech or Letter by Godmother or Godfather (Godparents Or Sponsor) To Godson Or Goddaughter
This is how a confirmation sponsor or godparent can easily write a divinely-inspired or a motivational letter or speech that will help deepen and strengthen his or her godchild’s faith in God in both good times and bad and also make him or her like a shining city set on a hill!
Let me first congratulate you for having being chosen as a confirmation sponsor or godparent.
Do you know heaven is so proud of you? They are because they are looking for people like you to help change the world just as Jesus desires.
So, don’t take your duties lightly because your godson or goddaughter will be looking up to you every step of the way.
What’s more, if you do a good job, Jesus will bless you here on earth and give you an imperishable crown someday!
Wouldn’t you love that? I guess you will!
I know you are looking for ideas and samples of letters for your godson or goddaughter as he or she begins his or her own walk with the Lord and that’s great step.
But, first, I want to share this story with you that will inspire you to effortlessly put down that inspirational letter or speech you’re thinking of.
There was this young man who had known Jesus throughout all his life.
He had a wonderful family, had many beautiful houses, many posh cars, lots of gold and silver and most importantly, his health was fantastic.
Over time, he was diagnosed with cancer and his strength began to fail him.
It got so bad that he sold all his possessions and his family, friends and even his beloved wife deserted him.
Before sunrise one day, he took a stroll down the beach with tears in his eyes as he pondered why he had lost it all.
After being there for almost an hour, he sat down and started sobbing.
Then, he began to pray: ''Lord, do you still love me after all these years? Please Lord, I need your help!''
With tears still rolling down his cheeks, he saw afar off a tall figure that walked towards him.
When the distant figure got to where he was, he sat by him and they began to talk.
After listening to Mark’s story, all Jimmy said was: ‘’ Mark you don’t have to give up hopes. Be strong and take heart. The Lord has been there for you through and through, and he will make all things beautiful in his own time.’’
Do You Know He’s The Consoler-In-Chief?
Let me ask you this: Do you remember how your walk with the Lord began? Who led you to Jesus? Where and when was that?
If you sit for just a moment to reflect on those questions, then you will know that the Lord has been so good to you.
Not only did the Lord help you out, but he also brought a sponsor or a godparent that helped you make sound choices every step of the way.
Your ''spiritual'' friendship with your godson or goddaughter reminds me of Paul’s love for the young Timothy.
The Apostle Paul said to the young Timothy: Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.’’(I Timothy 4: 12)
As your mentee is confirmed and given the free gift of the Holy Spirit, he or she too should be a good model not only to believers but the entire world around him.
Is This The Best Way To Help Your Godchild?
Well, one way of helping him or her make a difference is to write a letter or give a speech to inspire your godchild just as Paul did.
That being said, writing a spirit- filled or inspirational confirmation letter or speech is not an easy thing.
But, you don’t have to worry about it all.
The good news is that you and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
By the grace of God, I have been writing amazing speeches for years now, and I can help you out by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Now, let’s see how any confirmation sponsor or godparents can do that without pulling their hair out. Please get your pen and notepad and put down any idea(s) that comes to you.
Today, we are going to look at how to get the right words and ideas to help us put down what you really want to say easily and quickly
As we work together, I will try as much as possible to provide clear examples to buttress ideas I will put across.
Please, let’s get on the sailing boat with Jesus and he will make our storms calm okay?Thank you Lord Jesus for the insights! I love you so much!
The first thing you have to do before you even write is to...
Have A Chat with God’s Trusted Guide and Comforter
Wondering who that person is? The Holy Spirit!
He’s the person who always inspires me to write amazing speeches for clients the world over.
He’s the wellspring of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.
Once, I was writing a speech for a woman called Christine from Australia and I was really struggling.
So, I just said a simple prayer: ''Lord, you have never failed me. So, please help me out!''
The next thing I did was to read a few scriptures and an article or two and take a walk around the house.
And before I knew it, great ideas were going up and down in my head.
Why not say a prayer and ask the Holy Spirit to fill your mind with creative wisdom before you write and he sure will?
Remember, it is God who works in us and through us to accomplish simple, mighty and great tasks.
The second thing you have to do is to...
Listen To These Heavenly Melodies
Throughout this week, I have been singing St. Francis Assisi’s Make Me a Channel of Your Peace and I think it’s an excellent tune that can help you write a confirmation speech or letter that will bless your godson or goddaughter.
Below are the lyrics. Afterwards, we shall see how we can use the words of that song to put down our thoughts.
Where there is hatred let me bring your love,
Where there is injury your pardon Lord,
And where there's doubt, true faith in You.
Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there's despair in life let me bring hope,
Where there is darkness, only light,
And where there's sadness, ever joy.
Oh, Master, grant that I may never seek,
So much to be consoled, as to console.
To be understood, as to understand,
To be loved, as to love with all my soul.
Make me a channel of your peace.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
In giving to all men that we receive,
And in dying that we're born to eternal life.
I promised to help you write a short speech using some of the words above, so let’s see how that can be done.
Is This The Best Letter Ever Written or Speech Given By A Sponsor Or Godparent?
A few years back, we baptized you right here in this church and on that day, we all stood here as you were dedicated to the Lord and what a great blessing that was!
Waking up every morning to see the sparkle in his eyes meant so much to us, and we just hoped and prayed that growing up, your heart will be on fire for the Lord, so you become a living channel of peace and blessing to others!
Today, you are sealed with the Holy Spirit and it marks a turning point in your life as you are set to…
Do you realize how we used the words: ''Make me a channel of Your peace ''to get these words so you become a living channel of peace and blessing to others
That’s exactly what I mean when I tell you to borrow ideas from inspired songs like Assisi’s.
By the way, other songs that can inspire you and here are a few of them
- A Charge to Keep I Have
- All Who Believe And Are Baptized
- Be Still And How That I am God
- On Ward Christian Soldier
- Take My Life And Let It Be
There are many others too. All you have to do is to go for your church’s hymn book and see which tunes you feel can help you do justice to your written piece.

Below are some bible verses that can help you write your letter or make a good speech for your godson or goddaughter.
''Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.''- Proverbs 3:5-6
''For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love, and of self-discipline.''- 2 Timothy 1:7
''You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you''- Philippians 4: 13
"Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need."- Hebrews 4:14-16
"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth gives way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging." -Psalm 46:1-3
''But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well''- Matthew 6:33
''Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; nor does it give light unto all that are in the house.Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.''- Matthew 5:14-16
''Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit''-Matthew 28:1
''How can a young man keep his way pure?By guarding it according to your word.With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments!I have stored up your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.-- Psalm 119:9-11
''All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness''- 2 Timothy 3: 16
This Is A Perfect Confirmation Speech or Letter Example From A Sponsor
Again, I don’t want you to lose sleep over this, so grab our pen and paper and let’s work on another example together using a couple of those scriptures
Here you go:
''John, just a few years ago, we took you to church and you got baptized.
All throughout the years, I have seen you grow into a beautiful boy.
You are about to embark on your confirmation which will equip and empower you to be Christ’s true disciple.
Over here in our country and the rest of the world, we have seen the lives of young people go waste because they have been afflicted with the sensual delights of the world and that’s unfortunately, so sad to see.
Thankfully, today’s ceremony equips you with strength from above to turn things around for good because you have received the gift of the Holy Spirit and that makes all the difference in a sin-laden world.
You see, scripture tells us that after you have believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.
It further states that the Holy Spirit will embolden you, inspire you, and comfort you to be a man after God’s own heart!
As you go on with your life, know that you are called to be a true witness of Christ.
Jesus tells all of us here that you are the light of the word and you are like a shining city set on a hill so you have a responsibility to lead others to the saving power of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Along faith’s rocky path, you will reach points where you will wonder if God’s on ''vacation'' or not!
Yes, that happens to every one of us and the great men of faith recorded in the scriptural reading (Hebrews 11) felt this way too !
But one thing I know for sure is that God loves you more than we do and he will be right there by your side…
Never ever take the free gift you have received for granted!
You have been sealed by his spirit so you are his and let your words and actions show that you have been bought with the priceless blood of Jesus!''
Wasn’t that wonderful?
Did you notice how we used a few verses of scripture to write our confirmation speech or letter sample above? Can you make them out?
The fourth thing you can do is...
To Draw Inspiration From Your Own Life
Cast your mind back to when you had your confirmation.
- How was it like?
- How did that sacrament guide your whole life?
- How did you feel when you were preparing for it?
- Do you still have any of those letters you got from your sponsor, parents (mom and dad), friends, and well-wishers?
Simply take a deep breath, relax and walk down memory lane for a while and you will get answers to the questions I have just asked.
Don’t ignore any idea that comes to you. Draw useful lessons from all those '' mental resources '' and use it to write your piece.
Let’s see how that can be done using a story of your walk with the Lord.
Here’s another example!
''30 years ago, I got confirmed and just like the early disciples, I felt like I was ready to touch the world.
Days after that, I felt I might not live up to my calling as one of God’s chosen vessel.
I remember going to church one day and back then Father Romeo was our parish priest.
He said something that made my heart smile and made me believe the Holy Spirit was still with me no matter how I felt.
He said that when everyone forsakes you, God won’t!
That left a deep impact on me and as I began to search daily through the Scriptures of how the Holy Spirit makes our service to God, it was such a great joy.
I am not saying I am perfect human being. I made mistakes (and still makes) but the Lord guided my steps and helped me discover my purpose for being on earth!
Just like me, you will have doubts along the way.
There will be days when you will question the validity of your faith and you will be pressed on every side, but scripture tells us in 2 Corinthians 4 that though we are perplexed on every side, but we are not in despair..
Guess what? Through trials, your faith will be refined and you will be a blessing to humanity!''
To Speak With Any of These Wisemen Or Women
This is what I mean here. You may refer to the wisdom of wise men and I see that Catholic confirmation letters do make use of this approach a lot.
Let’s look at some wise remarks by some children of God.
- ''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
- ''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
- ''I wish not merely to be called Christian, but also to be Christian.''
— St. Ignatius of Antioch
- ''It is better to be a child of God than king of the whole world.''
— St. Aloysius Gonzaga
- ''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 guess those quotes will inspire you to write something on your own.
Finally, the sixth or final thing you have to do is to...
Consult Free Confirmation Speech Samples.
Don’t copy any of the examples I have shared above or others you find online word for word.
All you have to do is to read them over and over again and see ideas and words you can use for your own letter or speech.
Let’s look at this brief example:
''My prayer for you, as your Godmother and Sponsor, would be that your reception of this important sacrament would mirror the words of St. Ambrose:
Recall then that you have received the spiritual seal, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of right judgment and courage, the spirit of knowledge and reverence, the spirit of holy fear in God’s presence.
Guard what you have received.
God the Father has marked you with his sign; Christ the Lord has confirmed you and has placed his pledge, the Spirit, in your hearts.
The grace of your Confirmation deepens the grace you received way back on your baptismal day. It will have many effects. (See CCC 1303.)
Your Confirmation roots you more deeply as a son of God, and it strengthens your prayer to “Our Father”: The same Father in Heaven that you can call “Abba” as Jesus did, or “Daddy”.
Through your Confirmation, you will be more deeply joined to Christ, the Lord Jesus who loved you so much as to give up his life for you. Remember that Jesus was called the Son of God, right? By the gift of grace, in and through your baptism long ago, you were made a child of God too. Now your son ship is being taken to a new level.''
Here are some take-away ideas in case you want to use that example to come with yours.
- You can use the confirmation name your godson or daughter has adopted and write about that character: Here we find that he’s St. Ambrose.
- Also share what the Holy Spirit will do for and through him or her
I hope all the lessons I have shared plus even poetry can inspire you(sponsor or godparent) to come up with a letter or speech that will really help your godchild in their walk with the Lord!
You’re his or her mentor and your god-child and God will be counting on you in every facet of his or her life!
This time-sensitive message is ONLY for godparents or sponsors who really care about their godchildren and want them to be succeed in every aspect of their life!
Won’t you be so proud to see your godchild or daughter soar high like an eagle someday? Hope you definitely will!
As you are well aware, soaring higher in life is not an easy thing.
There are lots of hurdles to clear to reach there. You know what? There will also come a time when you are no longer around to help him or her make the right choices in life.
When that occurs, your soul stirring, inspiring confirmation letter or give a speech will help guide him or her every step of the way.
Despite all the tips, I have shared; writing what you have in mind is not easy at all, even for more experienced writers.
Nonetheless, your godchild is counting on you to show him or her you really care about him or her and your words can make all the difference, which is why we are giving you a rare chance to come up with something touching without pulling your hair out!
