Vesting Prayer

I recite this prayer each Sunday immediately before worship:
O Lord God Almighty, who didst endue Thine apostles with the gifts of the Holy Spirit, so that they proclaimed Thy Word with power: Grant unto me, who am set to minister and teach in Thy holy name, the same spirit of wisdom and love and power; that the truth Thou givest me to declare may search the conscience, convince the mind, and win the heart of those who hear it, and the glory of Thy kingdom be advanced; through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.
