Yesterday we talked a bit about how today, January 10th, is celebrated as the Baptism of Jesus. That it falls on a Sunday this year is one of those glorious coincidences.
We found this prayer online & thought we would share it with you… It moved us & we’re sure that it will do the same for you on this beautiful Sunday.
Open the heavens, almighty Father,
and pour out your Spirit
upon your people.
Renew the power of our
baptismal cleansing and fill us with
zeal for good deeds.
Let us hear your voice once again,
that we may recognize in your
beloved Son our hope of inheriting
Grant this through Jesus
Christ, your Word made flesh,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
in the splendor of eternal light,
God for ever and ever. Amen.
