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,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Prayer of St. Francis
Wow. The world sure needs this right now.
The level of maturity required to live this out is beyond me most days, but it’s still worth trying.
Even if we just got one or two of these right today the world would be a better place.
Pick a couple to work on this week. Watch what God does with your step of faith.
Make it a great day.
