Prayer of the Day
Almighty God, you anointed Jesus at his baptism with the Holy
Spirit and revealed him as your beloved Son. Keep all who are born of
water and the Spirit faithful in your service, that we may rejoice to be
called children of God, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who
lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and
Sunday Scripture Readings:
Luke 3:15-17, 21-22
of grace and glory, you call us with your voice of flame to be your
people, faithful and courageous. As your beloved Son embraced his mission
in the waters of baptism, inspire us with the fire of your Spirit to join
in his transforming work. We ask this in the name of our Savior Jesus
Christ, who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.
God, your voice moves over the waters. Immerse us in your grace, mark us
with your images, and raise us to live our baptismal vows empowered by the
Holy Spirit and the example of Christ our Lord, in whose name we pray.
