BAPTISM OF JESUS

Matthew 3

After Jesus was baptized, he came up from the water and behold the heavens were opened for him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming upon him. And a voice came from the heavens, saying, “This is my Beloved One, with whom I am well pleased.”

A Prayer of the Ancient Church

Come, O Holy Spirit, come!
Come like Holy Fire and burn with us.
Come like Holy Wind.
Come like Holy Light and lead us.
Come as Holy Truth and teach us.
Come as Holy Love and enfold us.
Come as Holy Power and enable us.
Come as Abundant Life and fill us.
Come, Holy Spirit, Come!
