Prayer: Remembering our baptisms, Acts 2 — Ana Gobledale, UK

Year A: Third Sunday of Easter

A Prayer based on Acts 2:14a,36-4

 

God of new beginnings,
Today we remember our baptisms:
A day shrouded in an infant’s hidden memory
A day chiselled in the sharp memory of a teenager
A day gloriously shining in the memory of a new convert.
Your promises live in each of us
Born anew in the waters of baptism
Generation to generation
Your spirit lives in each of us
Walking in your footsteps
Step by step
Your forgiveness lives in each of us
Kneeling in repentance
Open to your Spirit
Welcome into our hearts anew
