Prayer to Live as a Child of God

Father in Heaven,
when the
Spirit came down upon Jesus
at His
Baptism in the Jordan,
You revealed Him as Your own Beloved Son.
Keep me, Your child,
born of water and the Spirit,
faithful to my calling.
May I, who share in Your
Life
as Your child through Baptism,
follow in Christ's path of service to people.
Let me become one in His
Sacrifice
and hear His Word with faith.
May I live as Your child,
following the example of Jesus.
