AND accept, O Lord, our intercessions for all mankind. Let the light of thy Gospel shine upon all nations; and may as many as have received it, live as becomes it.  Be gracious unto thy Church; and grant that every member of the same, in his vocation and ministry, may serve thee faithfully.

Bless all in authority over us; and so rule their hearts and strengthen their hands, that they may punish wickedness and vice, and maintain thy true religion and virtue.

Send down thy blessings, temporal and spiritual, upon all our relations, friends, and neighbours.  Reward all who have done us good, and pardon all those who have done or wish us evil, and give them repentance and better minds.

Be merciful to all who are in any trouble; and do thou, the God of pity, administer to them according to their several necessities; for his sake who went about doing good, thy Son our Saviour Jesus Christ.  Amen.

From the Book of Common Prayer of the Reformed Episcopal Church
