The Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

The Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

A Simple Prayer

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred. . ..let me sow love.
Where there is injury. . . .pardon.
Where there is discord. . .unity.
Where there is doubt. . . .faith.
Where there is error . . . .truth.
Where there is despair. . .hope.
Where there is sadness . .joy.
Where there is darkness. .light.

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 to eternal life.
St. Francis
