Prayer for Peace

Prayer for Peace (Prayer of St. 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.

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.
