Opening Prayers/Prayers of Adoration on baptism



People of God, Rejoice!

Our Eternal and Beautiful God is near

The One who gives us new birth by water and Spirit

The One who names us beloved

The One who delights in our very existence

Come and worship


Holy Spirit, Holy One

Holy Spirit, Descending Dove

Alight on me that I may know your presence

Anoint me that I may know your call

Fill me that I may know your power

Guide me that I may know your path

Name me that I may know, that I know, that I know who I am

God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – You know what it’s like to be many and one at the same time.   

In You, we too are many … yet one.   

You’ve made us one body—a single family unified for one purpose; with one baptism—giving us a single identity.   

You’ve given us one Spirit—Your Spirit; and one hope—in the same future.   

And, with one faith we trust You for our salvation, our one Lord, Jesus Christ.
