Dear Lord Jesus, on Sunday
our church celebrated your baptism.
Our minister had people
come forward
and take a seashell
from the baptismal fount.
He then made the sign of the cross
with water on each forehead.
Dear Lord, it is a way to remember
one’s own baptism
as one of your followers.
Help us to follow you in Spirit
and in truth. Amen.

Matthew: 3:16-17:
And when Jesus had been baptized, just as he came up from the water, suddenly the heavens were opened to him and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, the Beloved, with whom I am well pleased.”
