Philip Kosloski - published on 07/20/22

This prayer on the feast of the Prophet Elijah is from the Carmelite liturgy for July 20.

While Old Testament figures are not widely known as saints in the Roman Catholic tradition, they are regarded as holy figures by many Eastern Christians, as well as by the Carmelite Order. There is even a prayer on the feast of the Prophet Elijah in the Carmelite liturgy for July 20.

Here is this prayer on the feast of the Prophet Elijah, which is used by many Carmelites to honor the holy prophet of the Old Testament.

Almighty, ever-living God,
your prophet Elijah our Father
lived always in your presence
and was zealous for the honor due to your name.
May we, your servants,
always seek your face
and bear witness to your love.
We ask this through our Lord.
