"O Forerunner and incarnate Lamp of the Savior..."

St. John the Forerunner (Source)
O Forerunner and incarnate Lamp of the Savior, the offspring of a barren woman, and friend of Him Who was born of a Virgin, who leaped for joy to worship Him as a babe in the womb, and who baptized Him in the waters of the Jordan, entreat Him, we pray you, O Prophet, that we might escape from the coming storms of this life.
-Doxastikon of the Stichera from the Feast of the Synaxis of St. John the Forerunner

Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
