A Prayer to the Saints

Prayers for Peace

"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God."

— Matthew 5:9

Who do you turn to in times of confusion, fear or need? At Franciscan Mission Associates, we encourage you to pray to God for inner peace and calm. One way to do that is by repeating the Peace Prayer of Saint Francis:

Lord, make me an instrument
of Thy peace;
Where there is hatred,
let me sow charity;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is error, truth;
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 to ourselves that we are born to eternal life.
