Day 170: Who Can Be Baptized? (1246-1252)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, we praise you. We give you glory and we thank you. Thank you for the gift of Baptism. If we have received Baptism, we just praise you because this gift has come to us, a purely gratuitous gift, a purely gracious gift, a grace-filled gift, an undeserved gift, an unearned gift, a gift that comes from your heart. We thank you. And for all of us who are listening who have not been Baptized, we ask that you please lead us step by step closer and closer to this incredible gift that you have in store. You want everyone on this planet, everyone who has ever lived, is living, or will live, you want them to be brought into your family. And so we ask you please, Lord God, for all those who are listening, joining us today, walking with us, who are not Baptized, we ask that you lead them by the power of your Love and your Truth to the fountain of Baptism so they can also become sons and daughters of you, our Heavenly Father. We make this prayer in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen”
