Grant, O God, that the course of this world may be directed by your peaceful governance, and that your church may be joyful as, in confidence and serenity, we serve your purpose; through Jesus Christ, our Saviour who is alive with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
