The Collect for Peace

O God, from whom all holy desires, all good counsels,

and all just works do proceed;
give unto thy servants that peace which the world cannot give;
that both, our hearts may be set to obey thy commandments,
and also that, by thee,
we being defended from the fear of our enemies
may pass our time in rest and quietness;
through the merits of Jesus Christ our Saviour. Amen.
 
From today’s Evening Service, The Book of Common Prayer
