Daylight Scripture – Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan River so that John would baptize him. John tried to stop him and said, “I need to be baptized by you, yet you come to me?” Jesus answered, “Allow me to be baptized now. This is necessary to fulfill all righteousness.”So John agreed to baptize Jesus. When Jesus was baptized, he immediately came up out of the water. Heaven was opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God coming down like a dove and resting on him. A voice from heaven said, “This is my Son whom I dearly love; I find happiness in him.”
Matthew 3: 13-17
Daylight Prayer – Lord, when you were baptized, God spoke to announce exactly who you are and how God felt about you. Thank you for my baptism, for it is in that work that you save me, claim me, and name me…your child, beloved, blessed and whole. Thank you for the work of your sacraments where heaven and earth meet, and your presence makes miracles for each of us. Amen.
