Prayer for “Baptism of the Lord” Sunday

Almighty God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who sanctified and blessed the water of baptism for all Christians through his own baptism by John, continue your work of cleansing the penitent from sin by the power of your Holy Spirit, so that we who honor Jesus as your beloved Son might live in the holiness of perfect love, to the glory of your holy name. Amen.
