"The collect for peace" as usd in Morning prayer.

Attacked by temptations?

Misunderstood by others?

Weary in welldoing?

You could learn some lines of the prayer below to repeat to yourself as needed.


O God, the author of peace

and lover of concord,

to know you is eternal life,

to serve you is perfect freedom:

defend us your servants

from all assaults of our enemies,

that we may trust in your defence

and not fear the power of any adversaries;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
