For Peace

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Proper: Third Part - Various Occasions.

Collect

I. O Almighty God, kindle, we beseech thee, in every heart the true love of peace, and guide with thy wisdom those who take counsel for the nations of the earth, that in tranquillity thy dominion may increase till the earth is filled with the knowledge of thy love; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

II. Almighty God, kindle, we pray, in every heart the true love of peace, and guide with your wisdom those who take counsel for the nations of the earth, that in tranquillity your dominion may increase until the earth is filled with the knowledge of your love; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Prayer over the Gifts

Lord, may the saving sacrifice of your Son, our King and Peacemaker, which we offer through these sacramental signs of unity and peace, bring harmony and concord to all your children. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Or this, in time of war or civil disturbance:

Lord, remember Christ your son who is peace itself, and who has washed away our hatred with his blood. Because you love all men, look with mercy on us. Banish the violence and evil within us, and by this offering restore tranquillity and peace. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
