When someone is baptised as a baby or a child, their parents and godparents make promises on their behalf.  They’re too young to make a coherent decision.  But there comes a time when we are old enough to stand on our own feet, know our own minds and have a real and personal faith in God.  Confirmation is a celebration of personal faith.  Those being confirmed affirm their faith and the Bishop prays for each Confirmation candidate in turn.  It is a special moment and lays down a faith-marker: ‘I turn to Christ.’
