A Collect for the Conversion of the World

O GOD, whose miracles of old we perceive to shine forth even in our times: who didst deliver one people from the pursuit of the Egyptians by the power of thy right hand, and dost now through the water of regeneration bestow thy saving health upon all nations: vouchsafe; that the fulness of the whole world may be numbered among the sons of Abraham and made partakers of the dignity of Israel through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
