John the Baptist

John son of Zechariah was born in c. AD 1 (in the Hebrew calendar) in the Roman district of Galilee.

Prayer

Blessed are you, LORD our God, King of the universe, by whose providence your servant John the Baptist was wonderfully born, and sent to prepare the way of your Son our Savior by preaching repentance: Make us so to follow his teaching and holy life, that we may truly repent, boldly rebuke vice, patiently suffer for the sake of truth, and proclaim the coming of Jesus the Messiah our Lord; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
