A PRAYER FOR PEACE
Oh God make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon,
Where there is despair, hope,
Where there is darkness, light,
Where there is sadness, joy.
Oh Divine One, grant that I may not seek so much as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
If is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
