Morning Prayer: for baptism, confirmation and renewal

God of mercy and love, new birth by water and the Spirit is your gift, a gift that none can take away; grant that your servants may grow into the fulness of the stature of Christ. Fill them with the joy of your presence. Increase in them the fruit of your Spirit: the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of love, patience and gentleness, the spirit of wonder and true holiness.
(A New Zealand Prayer Book, 392)
