Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me a channel of thy peace –

That where there is hatred, I may bring love-

Thank where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness –

That where there is discord, I may bring harmony –

That where there is error, I may bring truth –

That where there is doubt, I may bring faith –

That where there is despair, I may bring hope –

That where there are shadows, I may bring light –

That where there is sadness, I may bring joy.

Lord, grant I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted –

To understand, than to be understood –

To love, than to be loved.

For it is in self-forgetting that one find.

It is in forgiving that one is forgiven.

It is by dying, that one awakens to Eternal Life.
