A Baptism Prayer

Heavenly Father,

In Your love, You have called us

 know You, led us to trust You,

And bound our lives with Yours.

Surround all our recently baptised

 with Your Love,

Protect them from evil.

Fill them with Your Holy Spirit

And receive them into the Family of Your Church

That they may walk with us

And grow in the knowledge of Your Love


Jesus is anointed with the Holy Spirit and his power. He is proclaimed Messiah. He now goes about doing good, working the signs that make him known as the Servant of God. He is the one who brings good news to the poor and tells of salvation. Through our Baptism each one of us is ordered to the life of Christ – Priest, Prophet and King and the Father looks on us with favour.
