Winter (Advent) Ember Day: I

Nicolas Poussin Winter or The Deluge

Winter, or The Deluge, by Nicolas Poussin (1594–1665). From Wikipedia.

Almighty Lord and everlasting Father, who wouldest have the kingdoms of the world become the kingdom of thy Son Jesus Christ: Bestow thy blessing, we beseech thee, upon all who labour for peace and righteousness among the nations, that the day may be hastened when war shall be no more, and thou shalt take the nations for thine inheritance; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Given in the 1926 Canadian BCP as an Advent ember collect “For Peace in the World”.
