Prayer of Francis of Assisi

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;
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 the giving that we receive. It is in pardoning
that we are pardoned. It is in dying that we are born again
to eternal life.
