A CLWR prayer for the Sunday of the Baptism of Our Lord

Baptism of our Lord
O God, as we celebrate the baptism of our Lord, Jesus Christ, we remember our own baptism.
We thank you for claiming us as your children, and for calling us into lives of meaning and purpose.
Call your people to view all water in the same way that we view the water in the baptismal font: as your precious life-giving gift.
Help us to care for the gift of water, striving to make clean water accessible for all people. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
Thanks to Rev. Aaron Schnell, of St. Matthew’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Spruce Grove, Alberta, for contributing this week’s prayer!
