Prayer for the Seventh Sunday after Epiphany

O God,
author of peace,
may we be so held in the bonds of love,
that those who are peaceful may remain in peace,
and that those who differ may be reconciled by your mercy;
through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord.
Amen.

“may we be so held in the bonds of love” may be a reference to  2 Corinthians 5:14
