O LORD, God of infinite mercy, we humbly beseech thee to look down with pity upon the nations now engaged in war. Reckon not against thy people their many iniquities, for from the lusts of our own hearts come wars and fightings amongst us. Look in compassion on those immediately exposed to peril, conflict, sickness, and death; comfort the prisoners, relieve the sufferings of the wounded, and show mercy to the dying. Tenderly regard those who abide at home in fear, privation, and sorrow. Remove in thy good providence all causes and occasions of war; and of thy great goodness restore peace among the nations; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Book of Common Prayer (pg. 129)
