Heavenly Father, You have said, “I have made a covenant with My chosen...I have given help to one who is mighty; I have exalted one chosen from the people....My covenant I will not break, Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips.”...How long, Lord?

Matthew 3:13-17

13Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. 14But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? 15And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. 16And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: 17And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. (KJV)
