John & Charles Wesley, Renewers of the Church

John and Charles Wesley, Renewers of the Church –

Almighty God, we praise you for the men and women you have sent to call the Church to its tasks and renew its life such as your servants John and Charles Wesley. Raise up in our own day teachers and prophets inspired by your Spirit, whose voices will give strength to your Church and proclaim the reality of your kingdom; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
