Prayer of St. Francis

Oct 11, 2010

Here is the Prayer of St. Francis in its entirety:

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. Amen.

    Amazing prayer. Thank you for sharing Scott. Your message Sunday – as usual – encouraged me. I dream of the impact we as Christ followers could have – If only we all sincerely prayed this prayer daily…

  2. Pam Fox says:

    Wonderful! It would be great to have these prayers printed out for us at each service. Could that be done?

  3. [...] is going through a series titled Prayers of the Saints and lead pastor Scott Hodge shared the Prayer of St. Francis on his blog last week. I definitely recommend you read it and maybe even pray it.Carlos Whittaker [...]
