St. Francis of Assisi Prayer

“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.”

-St. Francis of Assisi


  1. I have always loved this prayer. It's never too old or out of date and full of truth. Thanks for sharing it!

  2. Wow. Needed to hear that prayer today...haven't been following that lately and so need to.
    Keep up the God work.

  3. In Jesus' name, Amen.

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful prayer, how wonderful it is to be a child of God.


  4. my husband says this aloud to the kids everyday on the drive to school....somehow they can never bring themselves to join in...until college when they pray this in the morning themselves.
