Prayer by St Francis of Assisi
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
Where there is sadness - joy
O divine grant master let me not so much seek
To be consoled as to console
To be understood as to understand
To be loved as to love
It is in giving that we receive
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned
It is in dieing to self that we are born to eternal life
