Prayer of the Month


Christian baptism is one of two ordinances that Jesus instituted for the church. Just before His ascension, Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:19–20). These instructions specify that the church is responsible to teach Jesus’ word, make disciples, and baptize those disciples.

Henry, my grandson will be baptised on Sunday February 11th and I offer this prayer for Henry and all people who will be baptised in the coming year! This prayer is said the day before the baptism.

Dear God,
Be with my friends tomorrow – may they know joy.
Be with my family tomorrow – may they know love.
Be with me tomorrow – may I know peace.
Be with my child – may he know your light
As he begins his amazing journey of faith.
Lead him in the right path,
Keep him safe
And help us all to know you are with us,
Now and always.
