Morning Collect for Peace

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 tranquility 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.

(BCP 258)
