Prayers for different occasions, and some inspirational thoughts

Prayer is often described as talking to God. Below are some prayers on different topics, to help us express are thoughts.
The Peace Prayer, attributed to Saint Francis of Assisi, is perhaps the most well known 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
