A Prayer for All of Us…

Recently, a loving friend sent me this and it touched my heart and spirit. I know that if each of us prayed this prayer for ourselves to change, it would make a huge impact on our families, communities and the entire world…

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy 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;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O 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,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Amen.

st. francis of assisi – 13th century
