Prayer for Peace

Prayer for Peace
by St. Francis Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where is hatred, let me so 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 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.

That's funny, I just TODAY read about that guy in history. That is a great prayer! I actually recall a song put to the words of the last part of it. Thanks for sharing!
