Francis of Assisi Prayer

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;

where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is discord, unity;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, teach me to seek:

not so much to be loved as to love,

to be understood as to understand,

to be consoled as to console,

for it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,

it is in giving that we receive,

and it is in dying that we rise to eternal life.

A beautiful poem when made from the heart. It was later adapted into the hymn, “Make me a Channel of Your Peace“.

Poem for Our Heavenly Father

I thank You Father, that on the darkest night,

Where You are, there’s always light,

Life without You, was no life at all,

So we thank You Lord, for Your call.

You teach us how to love and forgive,

And show us how in dying, we live,

We ask You Lord, to help us shine,

As beacons of Your love, Divine.

Your Holy Spirit lights the way,

In what to do and what to say,

So guide us Lord, in all we do,

Help us make our hearts more true.

All that we are, Let it be for thee,

Our Heavenly Father, who helps us to see,

And to lift You up and give You praise,

Be our heart’s desire, till the end of days.
