In our story, Jesus is baptised, when we baptise people today, we may talk about peoples Sins (the wrong things we do) being washed away. For our prayer today, we will hold on to our “rock” (or whatever you can find) and ask God to forgive us when we have done wrong. Then drop your “rock” into the bowl of water. Think about how god washes away our sins. You may want to thank God for his love for us as well!
