Morning Collect for All Sorts and Conditions

O God, the creator and preserver of all humankind, we humbly beseech thee for all sorts and conditions of women and men; that thou wouldest be pleased to make thy ways known unto them, thy saving health unto all nations.  More especially we pray for the holy Church universal; that it may be so guided and governed by thy good Spirit, that all who profess and call themselves Christians may be led into the way of truth, and hold the faith in unity of spirit, in the bond of peace, and in righteousness of life.  Finally, we commend to thy fatherly goodness all those who are in any ways afflicted or distressed, in mind, body, or estate; that it may please thee to comfort and relieve them according to their several necessities, giving them patience under their sufferings, and a happy issue out of all their afflictions.  And this we beg for Jesus Christ's sake.  Amen.

(BCP 815)
