God of all righteousness, we need the life and grace that you alone can give. As we present this child for baptism, we ask that you would fill them with your presence. Open the heavens and pour out your Holy Spirit so that we all may live as your beloved children, through Jesus Christ, our Savior. May your love surround us, your Spirit guide us, your voice cheer us, your peace calm us, your shield protect us, your wisdom arm us, wherever you may lead us. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
