Then John gave this testimony: “I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him...I have seen and I testify that this is God's Chosen One.” John 1:32, 34, NIV
Our Father in heaven, as your children may we truly receive something from you to bring our lives into a living bond with you. Grant that we may overcome everything harmful and evil. May it be given to us to help that your kingdom may come closer and closer, that your will may be done, and Jesus Christ, your Son, may be recognized as the light of the world for the salvation of all people and their deliverance from all evil. Protect us and grant that your Spirit may remain with us. Amen.
