Prayer of St Francis

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 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’s in dying that we are born to eternal life

Amen

  1. The Franciscan motto is my favorite prayer. It’s so simple. Why not. Franciscans officiated in many of the churches in my hometown. I heard it every day because I went to morning mass before school. It was inspiring and felt good.
