The Prayer of St Francis of Assisi
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.
If you would like us to pray for you or for someone else, please email us stating who or what you would like us to pray for. Your prayer request will form part of our prayers at St. Francis Church for the next month. Please email us again at the end of the month if you would like the prayer to continue, updating us where necessary.
Alternatively, please say if you wish the prayer to be part of the personal prayers of the clergy rather than the public prayers of the church at worship.
Your email will be treated as confidential and we will not contact you unless you have specifically asked us to do so.
