A Simple 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 to console,

To be to understand

To be to love,


It is in giving....that we receive,

It is in pardoning, that we are pardoned,

It is in dying.....that we are born to eternal life.

-St. Francis-



Grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change,

the courage to change the things I can

and the wisdom to know the difference.
