A Prayer for Tuesday, August 13, 2013


O God,

If and when we were baptized, we may have been poured, sprinkled, or dunked; in whatever style we were baptized, it symbolized our immersion in the death of Christ and our being raised to new life in him.

Keep us ever aware that we have been so immersed.

It is easy for us to get immersed in things: in our work, in our pleasures, in our guilt, in our fear—in ourselves. Protect us from getting drowned in them.

Whatever we have going on, though, keep us constantly immersed in your life, your grace, your love, your peace, your hope, and your Spirit.

If we must drown, let us drown in what finally matters most.
