Prayer of Salvation and Peace

Gracious Father, we pray for Your peace and salvation for us and for the whole world; for protection and visible unity for Your Church; for Your blessing on our Bishops, Priests, and Deacons, and for all our brothers and sisters in Christ in every place; for mercy on our city, state and nation and on all public officials in their troubles and endeavors; for abundant provision of the fruits of the earth; for protection over those who travel; for comfort and salvation for the sick, the suffering, the oppressed, and the captive; for Your deliverance from all affliction, wrath, danger, and need; and for Your mercy in the concerns that we offer to you.

Help and save us, have mercy on us and keep us, O God, by Your grace.  As we call to mind our most holy, most pure, blessed and glorious God-bearer and virgin Mary, will all the saints, let us commend ourselves, one another, and our entire life to Christ, our God.
