Almighty God, from whom all thoughts of truth and peace proceed: Kindle, we
pray thee, in the hearts of all men the true love of peace, and guide with thy
pure and peaceable wisdom those who take counsel for the nations of the earth,
that in tranquility thy kingdom may grow, till the earth is filled with the
knowledge of thy love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
from The Methodist Book of Worship for Church and Home, 1965
