Becoming an Instrument of Peace with St. Francis
Seek godly wisdom through the thoughts at Proverbial Thought.
I am going to do a series of posts that are prayers of the saints. I hope you enjoy and find yourself drawing closer to our Lord.
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;
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;
it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life.
Saint Francis of Assisi
