John Chrysostom

John of Antioch, nicknamed Chrysostom, or ‘golden mouth’ is commemorated by the church on 13 September. 

This is one of his prayers, widely used throughout the church for centuries: 

Almighty God, you have given us grace at this time with one accord to make our common supplication to you; and you have promised through your well-beloved Son that when two or three are gathered together in his Name you will be in the midst of them: Fulfill now, O Lord, our desires and petitions as may be best for us; granting us in this world knowledge of your truth, and in the age to come life everlasting. Amen.
