Saint Francis Prayer

My favorite prayer says it all, “ Lord, make me a channel of thy peace—that where there is hatred, I may bring love—that where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness—that where there is discord, I may bring harmony—that where there is error, I may bring truth—that where there is doubt, I may bring faith—that where this is despair, I may bring hope—that where there are shadows, I may bring light—that where there is sadness, I may bring joy.  Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted—to understand than to be understood—to love, than to be loved.  For it is by self-forgetting that one finds.  It is by forgiving that one is forgiven.  It is by dying that one awakens to eternal life.  Amen.”  —Saint Francis
