Prayer of Saint Francis

Posted on Updated on


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;
and 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.

Amen.

Saint Francis of Asisi

    I love this prayer..I have it on my wall beside my desk, and have used it in church a number of times.

    But, seeing it here, I also realize it is the perfect 13 part sermon series..a whole quarter year! So, thank you for September, October, and November!
