Lead Us to Eternal Life and Salvation

veit-dietrichLord God, heavenly Father,
you showed yourself with the Holy Spirit,
in the fullness of grace
at the baptism of your dear Son
and with your voice
you directed us to him
who would bear our sins,
that we might receive grace
and the forgiveness of sins.
Keep us in the true faith
and just as we have been baptized
according to your command
and the example of your dear Son,
strengthen our faith by your Holy Spirit
and lead us to eternal life and salvation;
through your beloved Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one true God, now and forever. Amen.
