Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi
Lord, 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;
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
I hope this provides a source of nourishment and focus for your day.
If you’re living with pain , my wish for you is to find a way to understand your needs, express them in a way that you can be heard and know that there is hope.
If you want support or a listening ear, contact me.
Sending you love, light and many blessings.
