Generous God, Saint John of Egypt was a hermit who made himself available to people who needed spiritual help. Many people, including the emperor, sought his counsel. He could prophesy the future, look into people’s souls, read their thoughts, and heal them through the use of blessed oil. I ask him to pray that I discover the special gifts You have given me, and that I learn how to use them in all the circumstances of my life and to help others grow closer to You. Teach me, Holy Spirit, to accept and grow in the gifts You’ve bestowed upon me, and favor me with more as I grow in holiness. Saint John of Egypt, pray for me. Amen.
