In time of war

O Lord our Creator and Preserver, who hast made of one blood all nations of men to dwell upon the face of the earth; We cry to thee in our distress, and beseech thee to look down in mercy on the terrible conflicts which are destroying the lives and estranging the hearts of thy children. O breathe upon thy people the spirit of thy Son; and grant that the work of righteousness may be peace, and the effect of righteousness quiet and assurance forever. Amen.
