Thank you, Lord, for water.
It is such a wonderful gift to us!
It comes down from the sky
and makes the flowers grow.
We marvel at the oceans,
rivers, lakes, and waterfalls.
We delight to see water
sparkle and dance in the sun.
It is used in baptism
as a sign of your Spirit.
Thank you, Lord, for this
life-giving resource. Amen.

Acts 8:34-38:
The eunuch asked Philip, “About whom, may I ask you, does the prophet say this, about himself or about someone else?” Then Philip began to speak, and starting with this scripture, he proclaimed to him the good news about Jesus. As they were going along the road, they came to some water; and the eunuch said, “Look, here is some water! What is to prevent me from being baptized?” He commanded the chariot to stop, and both of them, Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and Philip baptized him.
