A Blessing for Beloved Servants

May the Lord, righteous and true
uphold you, his servants, in all that you do;
may he put his Spirit upon you
so that you will not falter
or be discouraged
or lose heart

The Lord who created the heavens
will take hold of your hand.
The Lord who formed the earth
will give you breath to breathe.

May the Lord,
who opens blinded eyes,
and opens dungeon doors
so that prisoners may go free
say of you, say of me:
“This is my Son.
This is my daughter.
In her, in him, I am well pleased.”

Isaiah 42: 1 – 9 / Matthew 3: 13 – 17
(Baptism of Christ A)
