Heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You that by grace through faith, I have been made a new creation in Christ and placed in eternal union with my Lord and Saviour. Thank You that my old self has been buried with Christ through baptism into death, severing my slavery to sin. And thank You Father that I have been raised-up together with Christ from the dead, made a new creation in Him and imputed with His righteousness.. so that I may walk in newness of life. To You be all honour and glory in Jesus name, AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for Romans 6:4
Heavenly Father, I stand amazed at Your plan of redemption - that just as I am identified with Adam and imputed with his sin because I am his physical offspring, so I am identified with Christ and imputed with His righteousness because I am His spiritual seed, by faith. Thank You that because I have trusted Him for my salvation, I have become identified with His death and burial. Thank You that His death, burial, and Resurrection, has become my death to sin - so that I too might be raised into newness of life, through the glory of the Father. I stand amazed at Your wisdom and grace, and offer this prayer of thanksgiving and praise, in the precious name of Jesus, AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for Romans 6:4
Dear Lord and Heavenly Father, I praise and thank You with my whole being that I was baptised into the body of Christ when I was born into the family of God. Thank You for the wonderful opportunity to declare my new-found faith in Christ and my new life in Him, by going down into the waters of baptism as an outward sign of death, and coming up out of the waters as an outward sign of the inward change that took place in me at my rebirth.
I pray that as I prepare my heart to be baptised, that my baptism may be a true outward declaration to the world of my inwards change of heart and status in Christ, Who lifted me out of the miry clay and has seated me together with Christ in heavenly places.
Lord, may my water baptism truly demonstrate to the world the beautiful spiritual baptism that took place the moment I first believed, when I trusted Christ as Saviour and was born again by the power of the Holy Spirit.
I pray that going down into the baptismal waters may demonstrate to all that I have been crucified in Christ and died to the old life with Him on the cross. And may this water baptism demonstrate to all concerned that I have risen-up into newness of life in Christ Jesus my Lord.
Praise You Holy name! In Jesus name I pray,
Amen.Category: Prayers for Baptism
