A Serene Prayer for Baptism (Cleanse Your Mind and Heart Before Baptism With This Powerful Prayer)

Ask God to cleanse your heart and mind as you usher in a new chapter of your Christian faith through baptism. From today onwards, through this prayer and baptism, you are a new creation in the Lord Jesus.

Let us pray.

Dear Lord Jesus,

I thank you, God, for the gift of salvation through your death on the cross. I thank you for loving me even when I did not know you.

I thank you for this moment that you have given me to declare to the world that I am not ashamed of the gospel and my love for you.

This baptism signifies your death on the cross and your resurrection from the chains of death. As I walk into the water, as a symbol of the death of the sinful body and as I rise out of the water as a reformed person, please walk with me.

I confess my sins before you Lord, so that this event may be of significance to my Christian faith. Cleanse my heart and mind from all sin and evil desires.

Wash my sins away and redeem me through your blood. I believe in the power of your blood and the atonement of my sins through the new covenant.

Your word reminds me that whoever confesses their sins and is born again in Christ is a new creation. Behold the old is gone and a new creation is born.

I confess that Jesus is Lord over my life from today. Today, I am a new person. I shall walk with you in righteousness and faithfully keep your commandments.

I dedicate this day to be a beacon to remind me of the day my sins were forgiven and the beginning of my new life in Christ.

This baptism is an outward representation of the cleansing work of your blood and my deliverance from sin. It is a fulfilment of the example you set for us when your son was baptized.

And just as you set out to proclaim the gospel after baptism, lead me to proclaim your goodness to the world so that more people may get to know you.

Baptise my heart with the Holy Spirit to help me in this new chapter of life. Thank you, God, for your grace.

In Jesus name, I pray.
