With God's Help?

We had baptisms today. 8 of them, with 8 more to come next week.
The Anglican baptism service includes a series of questions to the candidates to which the candidate responds, "I will, with God's help."

Then the congregation stands and the question is posed, "Will you who witness these vows do all in your power to support these persons in their life in Christ?"
The congregation then responds, "I will, with God's help."

The pastor then said to the congregation, "Will you be seated." Without thinking, I blurted, as I was taking my seat, "I will, with God's help."

Sorry, I just couldn't help it.

Take Care
