A Baptismal Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,

As this week begins we stop and reflect on our baptism. On Sunday we celebrated the Baptism of our Lord, Jesus Christ. His baptism was not a cleansing from sin instead it was a coronation as King. You place Your special blessings of the Spirit of God on Him with these powerful words, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” Matt. 3:17

In our baptism, you also give us a special word joined with water connected with Your promise and adoption into the family of God. You said to us, “In the name of the Father and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.” And Father you attached this promise, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.“ Acts 2:38

In love, You have called us to know you. You continue to lead us to trust You. 

And through baptism, You bound our life with Yours.

Dear Jesus surround Your children with your everlasting love, protect us from the Evil One.

Today and every day fill us with the holy spirit that we may walk in the way of Christ,

and grow in the knowledge of His love. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
