Greetings again PB friends, As I mentioned in an earlier thread here, I attended a worship service last Lord's Day at a Presbyterian Church (PCA) and the congregation celebrated the baptism of several of its member's children. My question this time has to do with the baptismal rite common to Presbyterian Churches. Included in the officiant's prayer was a pleading for the Holy Spirit to "bless these waters of baptism." Is this sort of language typical in Presbyterian Churches? I left the service wondering whether there are Presbyterians who believe in a sort of sacramental efficacy whereby grace is transmitted literally through the water itself. Thanks in advance for insight shared.
