Solemnity of St John the Baptist
24 June

Prayer to St John the Baptist
O God, You raised up St John the Baptist to prepare a perfect person for Christ.
We call upon St John’s intercession to properly prepare us with a true sense of repentance to receive Your grace and salvation.
Make us faithful to truth and justice, as You did Your servant, John the Baptist, herald of Your Son’s birth and death.
Lord, may You increase Your life within us. Amen.
