The Baptism of Jesus: Our Baptism

Father in heaven, who at the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan proclaimed him your beloved Son and anointed him with the Holy Spirit: Grant that all who are baptized into his Name may keep the covenant they have made, and boldly confess him as Lord and Savior; who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen. (BCP)

God whose well-beloved child Jesus came up from the waters of baptism radiant with your Holy Spirit and ready to do the work to which you called him; by that same Spirit given to us in our Baptism make us brave also to repent from our sin and receive your forgiveness, to be strong against evil, and to persevere in doing right and loving kindness. Lord…Light of the world, let us shine with your light! (Rev. Jennifer Philips)
