A Collect of Thanks for Christ’s Baptism

Lord Jesus, who has shown us the way to the Father, what humility and love you have displayed for us in your baptism. Grant us the same humble hearts to follow in your footsteps and to be made clean by the waters of life that flow from your throne, through you who lives and reigns with the Father and Holy Spirit from eternity to eternity. Amen. ‘ In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.’ – Mark 1:9
