Peruvian Baptism by Revolution_Ferg

Lord God, gracious and merciful,
  you anointed your beloved Son with the Holy Spirit
  at his baptism in the Jordan,
  and you consecrated him prophet, priest and king:
pour out your Spirit upon us again
  that we may be faithful to our baptismal calling,
  ardently desiring the communion of Christ’s body and blood,
  and serving the poor of your people and all who need your love,
through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord,
  who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
  ever one God, world without end.

Lima Liturgy, WCC, Peru, 1982

For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—
whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—
and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.
