O God, who didst send Thy messengers and prophets to prepare the way of Thy Son before Him: Grant that our Lord when He cometh may find in us a dwelling prepared for Himself;
through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who came to take our nature upon Him
that He might bring many sons unto glory,
and now with Thee and the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth,
ever one God, world without end. Amen.
