Living into our Baptism
Every day is an opportunity to pray for grace to renew your baptism! We invite you to join us in this daily lenten prayer practice of praying for grace to live into our baptism:
Deliver us, O Lord, from the way of sin and death.
Open our hearts to your grace and truth.
Fill us with your holy and life-giving Spirit.
Keep us in the faith and communion of your holy Church.
Teach us to love others in the power of the Spirit.
Send us into the world to witness to your love.
Bring us to the fullness of your peace and glory.
Grant, O Lord,
that all who are baptized into the death of Jesus Christ your Son
may live in the power of his resurrection
and look for him to come again in glory;
who lives and reigns now and forever. Amen.
Book of Common Prayer, pages 305-6
