Baptism Prayer

God of mystery, draw us into deeper communion with the members of Christ’s body, the church.

 

As we seek to be disciples of Christ, awaken us to the gifts you have given, and help us to bring good news to the world.

 

May the water of baptism never cease to flow in our lives so that the death and Resurrection of Christ will be announced in our words, seen in our actions, and lead us to the fullness of life you have promised, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
