The Baptism of the LORD

Collect from the Book of Common Prayer

HEAVENLY Father, whose blessed Son
Jesus Christ did take our nature upon him,
and was baptized for our sakes in the river
Jordan: Mercifully grant that we being regenerate,
and made thy children by adoption and
grace, may also be partakers of thy Holy Spirit;
through him whom thou didst send to be our
Saviour and Redeemer, even the same thy Son
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Collect from the Book of Alternative Services

Eternal Father,
who at the baptism of Jesus
revealed him to be your Son,
anointing him with the Holy Spirit,
keep your children, born of water and the Spirit,
faithful to their calling;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. AMEN
