Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. 
But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”
Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” 
Then John consented.
As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. 
At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

Matthew 3:13-17

Eternal Father, 
at the baptism of Jesus you revealed him to be your Son,

Keep all who are born of water and the Spirit faithful to their calling as your people; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord, 
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
