Prayer for Peace
Lord, Make me an instrument of Thy 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, liqht;
And where there is sadness, joy.

Lord, Grant that I may seek rather
to comfort than to be comforted;
to understand than to be understood,
to love than to be loved:
For it is by giving that one receives,
by forgiving that one is forgiven
and by dying that one awakens to Eternal life.
