St. Francis of Assisi

One of my most favorite prayers..

Lord, make me an instrument of Your Peace

Where there is Hatred, let me sow Love

Where there is Injury, Pardon

Where there is Doubt, Faith

Where there is Despair, Hope

Where there is Darkness, Light

Where there is Sadness, Joy

Divine Master,

Grant that I may not so much seek 

To be consoled, as to console.

To be understood, as to understand.

To be loved, as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive,

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,

It is in dying that we are born into eternal Life.
