Collect for Allergy Suffers

O God of Grass and Pollen, Dust and Mold: you created everything in this vast domain, and see all things to their proper end.  Look with mercy, we pray, on those who suffer allergic reactions to these natural things, and relieve them of their itchy eyes and runny noses and gurgly ears and sneezy soundings, that may soon be whole and hale and unencumbered of their afflictions, and may at length praise you as the Great Physician and Healer.  This we ask through the merits of our one Lord, the Healer of All Humankind, who lives and reigns with you, One Holy Trinity, undivided and indivisible, now and forever.  Amen.

Yes, I wrote this little Collect for myself just now, since my ear is gurgling again for the third day in the last eight.  E’en so, Lord Jesus, deliver me.
