  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
