We shared this prayer in our Baptism Celebration this week..
Opening Meditation ‘ Prayer for the Walk’
Play Itunes ‘ Down to the River to Pray’ by Wanda Vick or ‘A New Life’ by Klaus Badelt
I invite you to place your feet firmly on the ground.
Feel the ground beneath your feet. Notice your feet at rest.
Thankyou for bringing us to this place God, for gathering us together.
We come into your presence, resting in you, welcoming you, waiting quietly for you.
Let all that I am wait quietly before God,
for my hope is in him.

We thank you for all those who have journeyed before us and lift up all who journey beside us, here, around Australia and all around the world.
Thankyou for the way Isiaiah, Jack and Merinda are following you today, being baptized as you were, following you into the life you have for them, into the church community you have for them.
May we walk together with them into this world, bringing life, identity, rest, shelter, healing and peace to life around us.
We desire to place our feet in your foot steps Lord, for you have shown us the way to live and to love.
In the name of Jesus, our brother and our Leader, Amen.
