Jesus' Baptism

The following collect may draw from shared traditions (see commentary). It is my reworking of a collect by Cranmer for Christmas, and I am suggest it for the First Sunday in Ordinary Time (January 13), celebrating Christ’s baptism for my Book of Prayers in Common.

Let us pray (in silence) [that we will be faithful to our baptism]

Pause

Eternal Father,
you have given us your only-begotten Son
to take our nature upon him,
and revealed him to us
at his baptism in the River Jordan,
grant that we, who have been born again of water and the Holy Spirit,
and made your children by adoption and grace,
may daily be renewed by your Holy Spirit,
through Jesus Christ, our Saviour,
who is alive with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Amen.
