The purpose of child dedication is to publicly proclaim that the parents desire to uphold God’s Word in the home and their responsibility as parents is to be in agreement with God’s Word. At the child dedication the parents are exhorted to “train up their child in the way they should go”. The prayer of blessing prayed over the child and parents is to provide a spiritual covering to maintain and promote the family unit as God planned it to be.
Matthew 19:14 (NLT)
But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.”
