We relate the p-adic heights of generalized Heegner cycles to the derivative of a p-adic L-function attached to a pair (f, χ), where f is an ordinary weight 2r newform and χ is an unramified imaginary quadratic Hecke character of infinity type (ℓ, 0), with 0 < ℓ < 2r. This generalizes the p-adic Gross-Zagier formula in the case ℓ = 0 due to Perrin-Riou (in weight two) and Nekovář (in higher weight).
