Most merciful and loving Father,
We beseech Thee most humbly, even with all our hearts,
To pour out upon our enemies with bountiful hands
whatsoever things Thou knowest may do them good.

And chiefly a sound and uncorrupt mind,
Where-through they may know Thee and love Thee
in true charity and with their whole heart,
And love us, Thy children, for Thy sake.

Let not their first hating of us turn to their harm,
Seeing that we cannot do them good for want of ability.

Lord, we desire their amendment and our own.
Separate them not from us by punishing them,
But join and knot them to us by Thy favourable dealings with them.

And, seeing we be all ordained to be citizens of the one everlasting city,
Let us begin to enter into that way here already by mutual love,
Which may bring us right forth thither.

O God, who hast made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on the face of the whole earth, and didst send thy blessed Son to preach peace to them that are far off and to them that are nigh ;

Grant that all men everywhere may seek after thee and find thee.

Bring the nations into thy fold, pour out thy Spirit upon all flesh, and hasten thy kingdom ;

Through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
