A Collect for Peace
Mighty God, who exercises power to defend the weak and needy, bring peace to this troubled world, that anger would be calmed and aggression be soothed so that your children may live without fear and contentment would fill the earth, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit from on high, world without end. Amen.
'The wolf shall live with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the kid, the calf and the lion and the fatling together, and a little child shall lead them. The cow and the bear shall graze, their young shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. The nursing child shall play over the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put its hand on the adder's den. They will not hurt or destroy on all my holy mountain; for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.' - Isaiah 11:6-9
