Prayer For Peace


Peace Prayer of St. Francis

Peace Prayer of St. Francis, Blue door with heart shaped opening


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 with all my soul.
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.

and live each moment in peace eternally.

And none shall be afraid,
for the mouth of the Lord of Hosts has spoken.

If the enemy incline towards Peace,
do thou also incline toward Peace.And trust God,
for the Lord is the one that
Heareth and knoweth all things.
And the servants of God, most gracious are those
who walk on the Earth in humility,
And when we address them, we say:Peace"

And of those who take away your goods,
do not ask for them again.
And as you wish that others would do to you,
do so to them.
