Epistle: Acts 8:14-17
Gospel: Luke 3:15-17, 21-22
God of grace and glory, you call us with your voice of flame to be your
people, faithful and courageous. As your beloved Son embraced his
mission in the waters of baptism, inspire us with the fire of your Spirit to join in his transforming work. We ask this in the name of our Savior
Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.
