Baptismal Prayer

IDEA: Here is a baptismal prayer sent to me by a colleague in ministry. It comes from the French Reformed Church and is included in the Church of Scotland Book of Common Order.
Little children, for you, Jesus Christ came into the world; for you he lived among us and showed God's love; for you he suffered the darkness of Calvary and cried at the last 'it is accomplished'; for you he triumphed over death and rose in newness of life; for you he ascended to reign at God's right hand. All this he did for you, little children, though you do not know it yet. And so the word of Scripture is fulfilled: We love God because God first loved us.
