Aa thoughts: How to pray

The prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

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, light

Where there is sadness, joy

Oh,divine Master, grant that I may not seek so much as 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 recieve it is in pardoning that we are pardoned. It is in dying that we are born again to eternal life.

This is my favorite prayer and by no means is it the only great one ou there. On a personal note I have said this hundreds of times at my 7am meeting. I also had the privilege of going to Asisi in Itali and having a cannoli and visiting the St francis cathedral. What a blessing. Did you know the Franciscan cross is shaped like a capital T instead of the standard t shape? I brought a few home as gifts.

What is your favorite prayer and why?
