Winter (Advent) Ember Day: II

Nicolas Poussin Winter or The Deluge

Winter, or The Deluge, by Nicolas Poussin (1594–1665). From Wikipedia.

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts, who of thy divine providence hast appointed divers Orders in thy Church: Give thy grace, we humbly beseech thee, to all those who are to be called to any office and administration in the same; and so replenish them with the truth of thy doctrine, and endue them with innocency of life, that they may faithfully serve before thee, to the glory of thy great Name, and the benefit of thy holy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Given in LFF63 as an Advent ember collect, and in the 1979 BCP as a general collect “For Those to be Ordained”. It is derived from the collect for the Ordering of Deacons in the 1549, 1662, and 1928 Prayer Books.
