Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth:
    Set up your kingdom in our midst.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God:
    Have mercy on me, a sinner.

Holy Spirit, breath of the living God:
    Renew me and all the world.

NT Wright, 1948- , British New Testament Scholar, retired bishop


Matthew 3:16-17

And when Jesus was baptized,
   immediately he went up from the water,
   and behold, the heavens were opened to him,
   and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove
   and coming to rest on him;
and behold, a voice from heaven said,
   “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”
