Collect Prayer - 1st Sunday after Epiphany
Father in heaven, who at the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan proclaimed him your beloved Son and anointed him with the Holy Spirit.  Grant that all who are baptised into his Name may keep the covenant they have made, and boldly confess him as Lord and Saviour, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, in glory everlasting.  Amen
