For peacefulness.
Ⅰ.
 
Almighty Father!
I humbly ask thee for thy help,
for my need is great.
Do thou grant peace unto my soul.
My days fly past in quick succession,
and are marked by happy expectations
or by grievous disappointments.
With thee, O Lord, is peace.
O Lord,
in the thought of thy constant love and pity
may I learn to find my rest.
I am weary
with trying to understand
the mysteries of sin and of evil
against which I so often struggle in vain.
Teach me to be still
and to wait patiently for Thee,
who art perfect in knowledge and goodness.
Amen.
Ⅱ.
 
Grant abundant peace unto thy people for ever;
for thou art the sovereign Lord of all peace;
and may it be good in thy sight
to bless thy people
at all times
and at every hour
with thy peace.
Blessed art thou, O Lord,
who blessest thy children with peace.
Amen.
