Give Your Ministers Burning Zeal

Advent 1

O Lord God,
at the first coming of your Son Jesus Christ,
you sent John the Baptist in the spirit and power of Elijah
to prepare the way before him.
Grant to the ministers of your Word and sacraments
the same burning zeal to prepare the way for his coming again;
through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
