Spring, by the studio of Sebastiaan Vrancx (1573–1647). From Wikipedia.

O God, who didst lead thy holy apostles to ordain ministers in every place: Grant that thy Church, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, may choose suitable men for the ministry of Word and Sacrament, and may uphold them in their work for the extension of thy kingdom; through him who is the Shepherd and Bishop of our souls, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Given in the 1979 BCP as the second Ember collect, “For the Choice of Persons Fit for the Ministry”.
