Save a Little Prayer

When I first read this prayer written by St. Francis of Assisi, the Italian mystic preacher, my soul fell in love with each word..I kept reading it again & again & again..I then decided to write it on a piece of paper and hang it on my Vision board. And I believe it’s worth sharing.

“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;

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 light.”
