A Baptismal Prayer
In your love you have called us to know you,
led us to trust you,
and bound our life with yours.
Surround this child with your love,
protect it from evil.
Fill it with the holy spirit and
receive it into the family of your church,
that it may walk with us in the way of Christ,
and grow in the knowledge of your love.
