The Collect for John & Charles Wesley

Today we remember two great leaders of the evangelical revival of the 18th century, John and Charles Wesley. To read more about their life and ministry click here.

Lord God, you inspired your servants John and Charles Wesley with burning zeal for the sanctification of souls, and endowed them with eloquence in speech and song; Kindle in your Church, we entreat you, such fervor, that those whose faith has cooled may be warmed, and those who have not known Christ may turn to him and be saved; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
