Prayer of Saint Francis

Prayer of Saint Francis

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.


This is one of my all time favorite prayers, it lifts me and reminds me of the Grace of God in our lives.  

Be well and be brightly blessed, always and in all ways...

  1. An old favourite of mine too. Thanks for sharing! I love his focus on praying for the Lord to help him be a blessing than receive a blessing. You are a blessing to us and I pray that the Lord bless you as much as you bless us! With love
