A Prayer For Baptism

Dear God,

We come to you in prayer today to ask for your blessing on this child. We know that you are the source of all good things and that you want us to be happy in our lives. We believe that this baptism will bring joy into our hearts and the hearts of our family members and friends.

We ask for your help with this new journey that we are about to begin with our son/daughter. Please guide us through each step of the way as we teach them about life, love, and faith; so that they can grow up strong in your love and lead others into your kingdom.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Dear God,

As I prepare to be baptized, I ask that you guide me through this time of transition. Help me to see the world with new eyes and to understand what it means to be a child of God.

I pray that you will help me to see the importance of my baptismal covenant and its power over my life. I pray that you will give me the strength to live out this covenant in every part of my life: in my thoughts, words, and actions.

I pray that you will keep me safe from harm, both physical and spiritual. And I pray that you will guide me as I grow up in this world.

Help me to remember that no matter how difficult things may seem at times, they are part of your plan for me—for us—and for all creation.

In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!

Dear God,

I thank you for this opportunity to baptize [name]. I pray that you will be present at this ceremony and guide our hands as we perform the sacrament.

I ask that you cleanse us of our sins and make us new. Let us remember that baptism is not only a symbol of what has happened in the past, but it is also a sign of what is yet to come. Baptism signifies that Jesus has already forgiven our sins and set us free from sin’s power so that we may live as he lived—for love and for others. We pray for [name] and for all who are being baptized today that they may have a renewed sense of purpose in their life and an increased love for your children.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen

Heavenly father, thank you for the gift of water.

Heavenly father, thank you for the gift of water. We thank you for the blessing of rain and snow, which provide us with life-sustaining water. We thank you also for your mercy and kindness as we face times of drought.

Water is a symbol of cleansing and rebirth—please wash away our sins by baptizing us in holy waters today. Help us to remember that we are cleansed by your grace alone through faith in Jesus Christ our savior, who died on the cross for our sins so that we might have eternal life with you! In his name I pray.”

Thank you Lord for this day that is filled with your spirit and your grace.

Thank you Lord for this day that is filled with your spirit and your grace. Thank you for allowing me to be born into a family who loves me and has taught me well. Thank you for the people in my life right now, who help me learn more about what it means to be filled with your spirit.

Thank you for all things great and small, but mostly thank you for that which cannot be seen by the eye of man: whether in our homes or on foreign lands; whether in great cities or remote villages; whether among friends or strangers–you are there! You are everywhere! You fill everything around us with such an abundance of goodness that we cannot help but feel overwhelmed by gratitude towards thee (Psalm 139).

Thank you God, because if I did not believe this was true then I would have nothing left worth living for–no hope of blessing beyond myself or my own comfort here upon Earth during these twenty-four hours between birthdays (or however many remain before death takes over).

Thank you for calling us to come out of the world and be a part of your family.

You are calling us to come out of the world and be a part of your family. We have been baptized in the Holy Spirit, who cleanses us from all sin. We have been reborn by Jesus Christ and made new creatures in him. Our sins have been forgiven, and we are now adopted as children of God through faith in Christ alone.

We thank you for this great salvation given to us when we were dead in our sins and did not know what to do about it (Eph 2:1-5). We also thank you for making us members of your church at this time, so that we can grow together with other Christians until we reach maturity (1 Cor 3:6-7; Eph 4:11-12).

Help us to walk in the footsteps of Jesus and follow in his ways.

  • Help us to walk in the footsteps of Jesus and follow in his ways.
  • Be kind to everyone, even if they are unkind to you.
  • Don’t lie, steal or cheat others.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it; don’t be ashamed of your struggles; ask God for miracles daily. He is listening!
  • Be humble enough to admit when you are wrong or have done something wrong; do not hold grudges against others when they apologize for their actions or words directed towards you—forgive them instead!

Bless this meal that we are sharing together.

You and your family can pray a blessing before the meal.

  • Place a bowl of water next to the table.
  • Place a towel on top of the bowl of water, then place it in front of everyone at the table so they can see it easily as they sit down.
  • Pray: “Bless this meal that we are sharing together.”

We pray that we will never take this sacrament lightly but that we will always remember what it means and why we do it.

We pray that we will never take this sacrament lightly but that we will always remember what it means and why we do it.

  • We are remembering the sacrifice Jesus made for us when He died on the cross to pay for sin.
  • We are showing our gratitude to God for saving us from our sins, which separates us from God when they remain unconfessed and unexpiated.
  • We are confirming that we are on the right path with God as members of His Church (the Body of Christ).
  • And finally, we are remembering that even though baptism is not necessary for salvation, it is still an important step in becoming a Christian and coming into full communion with Christ’s church here on earth while preparing us for heaven where we will see him face-to-face someday!

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Thank you for hearing my prayer, O God. Amen.
