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
