Prayer of Commitment: Epiphany 1 B

Here’s a prayer of commitment for the first Sunday of Epiphany.  It comes from the Lutheran Church of Australia.

Prayer of Commitment
(Matthew 3:13-17, Mark 1:9-11, Luke 3:21-23)

Loving Father,
you anointed Jesus at his baptism
with the Holy Spirit,
and revealed him as your dear Son.
Thank you for making us your children
by water and the Spirit.
Keep us faithful to you
throughout our lives.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
Amen.
