Last Sunday was the first Sunday of Epiphany, where we celebrate and meditate on the baptism of Christ. Below is the collect prayer for this Sunday. (A collect is a prayer that “collects” into one the prayers of the individual members of a congregation.)
We encourage you to pray this prayer with your families this week.
Father in heaven,
who at the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan
proclaimed him your beloved Son
and anointed him with the Holy Spirit:
Grant that all who are baptized into his Name
may keep the covenant they have made,
and boldly confess him as Lord and Savior;
who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns,
one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.
