Let us pray. | Then shall be said the COLLECT for the day; the Collect for the Sunday is said throughout the week following until Friday, but on Saturday the Collect for the following Sunday is said. Then may be said any other Collects and after that this COLLECT FOR PEACE. A Versicle may be used with the Collect.
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 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 Savior.
| The service may end with the Benedicamus; or a Closing Hymn may be sung, after which may be said:
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all.
| At the close of the Service silent prayer should be offered.
God the Father in heav - - en; have mer-cy up-on
Minister. By the mystery of Thy holy Incarnation;
By Thy holy Nativity;
And by the coming of the Holy Ghost, the Comforter:
And to lead and govern Thy holy Christian Church in the right way;
To preserve all pastors and ministers of Thy Church in the true knowledge and understanding of Thy Word, and in holiness of life;
To put an end to all schisms and causes of offense;
And to comfort and help the weak-hearted and the distressed:
To give to all nations peace and concord;
To behold and succor all who are in danger, necessity, and tribulation;
And to have mercy upon all men:
To forgive our enemies, persecutors, and slanderers, and to turn their hearts;
To give and preserve to our use the fruits of the earth;
And graciously to hear our prayers: I Congregation.
