Theophany Prayer

Today the grace of the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove descended upon the waters.

Today the waters of the Jordan are transformed into healing by the coming of the Lord.

Today the transgressions of men are washed away by the waters of Jordan.

Today Paradise has been opened and the Sun of Righteousness shines down upon us.

Today we have been delivered from darkness and illuminated with the light of the knowledge of God.

Today the Master hastens toward baptism that He may lift man up to the heights.

Today the Master buries in the waters the sin of mortal man.

Today the Master receives testimony from on high, that He is the beloved Son.

Today the Master comes to sanctify the nature of the waters.
