PRAYER FOR THE FEAST OF SAINT JOHN

O God, Who seest that on every side
we are afflicted by our evils;
deny us not, we entreat Thee,
the safeguard of the glorious intercession
of blessed John Thine apostle and evangelist.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son,
Who liveth and reigneth with Thee
in the unity of the Holy Ghost,
world without end.

Amen.
