The Peace 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 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
