Solemnity of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist

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.
