Prayer for Peace

O Lord,

Make me an instrument of your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love,

Where there is injury, pardon,

Where there is doubt, faith,

Where there is dispair, hope,

Where there is darkness, light,

And where there is sadness, joy.


 
Oh 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.

by St. Francis of Assisi
