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
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.”
