Prayer of St Francis
Lord, make us instruments of your peace
where there is hatred, let us sow love
where there is injury, pardon
where there is doubt, faith
where there is despair, hope
where there is sadness, joy
and where there is darkness, light

Grant that we may not seek
so much 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
in pardoning that we are pardoned
and in dying that we are born to eternal life

Amen.
