Everlasting God, thank you that you give the gift of eternal, abundant life. You said that to enter the kingdom of heaven, we must be born again of water and the Spirit. You have given us baptism as the sign and seal of this new birth. In baptism, we are washed by the Holy Spirit and made clean. In baptism we are clothed with Jesus’ righteousness, dying to sin that we may live his risen life. May this child find their identity and dignity as your child, as you lead them into the fullness of life. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
