God of water and life, long ago you sent your Son, Jesus to be baptised by your servant John to fulfill all righteousness. We
praise and thank
you that through our baptism into the death and resurrection of Christ, we are
given the water of life through a covenant that equips us to serve you and your
holy purposes in the world; through your Son who lives and reigns with you and
the Holy Spirit; one God, now and through all ages of ages.
