Prayers for Baptism and Confirmation

Let us offer prayer for those being baptized, and those who are renewing their commitment to Christ through the rite of confirmation; for Leah, Kaitlyn, Norm, Bryan, Kyla, Nadine, Rachel, and Andrew:

 

Deliver them, O Lord, from the way of sin and death, and continually open their hearts to your grace and truth. Lord in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.

 

Fill them with your holy and life-giving Spirit, and teach them to love others in the power of that Spirit. Lord in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.

 

Send them into the world beyond these walls, and grant them the grace and courage to bear witness to your love in all things. Lord in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.

 

Be with them in their lives of discipleship, and bring them to the fullness of your peace and glory. Lord in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.

 

Almighty God,

receive into the arms of your mercy

all who will be baptized and confirmed this day,

and make them your own for ever;

that, having tasted of your goodness,

they may ever hunger for your continuing presence

in their walk of faith. Amen.
