Prayer for Peace

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace

Where there is hatred, let me know love,

Where there is injury, pardon,

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 that we are born

To eternal life
