New Life Baptism Day Prayer
God of new birth,
thank you for this celebration of baptism.
Thank you for your sacrifice for us,
and your presence in our lives.
Thank you for each person baptized today,
for this chance for many to remember their own baptism,
and for others to consider an invitation to join your church.
Thank you for the reminder of the way we die to our sins,
leaving behind self-centredness, greed, and hatred.
