A Prayer From St. Francis of Assisi

A Prayer from St. Francis of Assisi:
"Lord, make us instruments of Thy peace: Where there is hatred, let us sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is discord, union; 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 we 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. Amen."
(h/t to Josh Bales for leading us in this prayer this morning at Lake Baldwin Church.)
