From the Book of Common Worship (1993), of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.):

Eternal God,

at the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan

you proclaimed him your beloved Son,

and anointed him with the Holy Spirit.

Grant that all who are baptized into his name

may keep the covenant they have made,

and boldly confess him as Lord and Savior;

who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns,

one God, in glory everlasting.      Amen.

From the Book of Common Worship (1993), of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.):

Holy God,

you have sent your Son to be baptized among sinners,

to seek and save the lost.

May we, who have been baptized in his name,

never turn away from the world,

but reach out in love to rescue the wayward;

by the mercy of Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and forever.     Amen.
