Child Dedication Prayer:
1911 Mennonite Minister's Manual (Russia)
The 1911 Mennonite Ministers’ Manual, Berdjansk, in Russia includes a page on “Child dedication," translated here into English. Accompaning this blessing were specific instructions for a service: after a song on the topic of child rearing, a short talk on the topic addressed to the parents, is given by the minister. A prayer is spoken while the act of blessing occurs. This is followed by several verses of another song on the topic.
