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 preparing for Baptism
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

Last year 51 babies were baptised in our parish.
As we celebrate the Baptism of Jesus, we remember that Baptism is the first of three sacraments of initiation, along with Eucharist and Confirmation,
it begins our membership of God’s family.
We received the gift of faith from our parents who brought us to be baptised.
Please pray for the babies who will be baptised in the coming year.
