Almighty God,
by whose providence your servant John the Baptist

by the preaching of repentance:
lead us to repent according to his preaching and, after his example,
constantly to speak the truth, boldy to rebuke vice,
and patiently to suffer for the truth's sake;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.

Loving Father,
by your grace we long to see
more people knowing Jesus,
and more justice in your world.
Help us to live as your disciples in the power of the Spirit and to work to your praise and glory.
