last sunday of pentecost

Almighty and everlasting God,
it is your will to restoreall things
in your well-belovedSon,
our Lord and King.
Grant that the peoples of the earth,
now divided and enslaved by sin,
may be freed and brought together
under his gentle and loving rule;
who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
