peace prayer

prayinghands2.jpg

A prayer for you. And for me.

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.
Amen.

St. Francis of Assisi

  1. Great name for a website, Krista!
    This is one of Jason’s old friends, but I thought I’d take a gander at his new bride’s musings. One of my favorite prayers, St Francis’ “Make Me A Channel” is beautifully augmented in the music of The Innocence Mission. I can’t find a copy online, but I know I have one. If you’d like me to email it to you as an mp3 so you could hear, I could do that.
    Take Care,
    Matt(hew) Bodie
