Prayer for Mark 1:8

“I have baptized you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."”

Praying through Mark 1:8

Dear Lord, thank You that You died for me and that I am saved by Your grace alone, through faith in Christ. Thank You that the moment I believed on Him, I was baptised into the Body of Christ, positioned in Him, and became a member of His mystical Body, the Church. Thank You for the opportunity to proclaim outwardly my spiritual birth and privileged position in Christ by going through the waters of baptism as an open declaration of my change of heart and my trust in Him. Thank You that my old sin nature is chained to the Cross and I have received newness of life. Keep me from fleshly pursuits and keep me pure in Your sight, so that others may see my life and glorify You. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
