The Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi–adapted by me

Spirit of Life, 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.

Divine Teacher, 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 to selfishness
that we are born to a fuller life.
