Prayer to Saint John, the Apostle and Evangelist

God our Father, you have revealed
the mysteries of Your word
through John the Apostle.
By prayer and reflection
may we come to understand
the wisdom he taught.
We ask this through Jesus Christ,
Your Son, Our Lord,
who lives and reigns with You
and the Holy Spirit, one God,
forever and ever.
