Daily Transformation Inspiration: Peace Prayer of St. Francis

I wrote a very vulnerable piece encouraging you to be kinder to yourself by exploring what that looks like. It’s RIGHT HERE. Greater kindness will naturally draw more peace into your heart, even though your present circumstances may remain or worsen.

So why bother?

What changes is YOU. And your capacity. Your wisdom. Your maturity. Your desire. Your heart. Your treasure. Your passion. Your contentment. Your freedom.

I’m just like you. We’re growing. We spend time in the valley. We spend time on the mountain. We fall asleep. We forget.

Let’s keep each other awake and let kindness have its way with us.

Oh, Francis, thank you for giving us these words. Your prayer can be our prayer, and maybe just maybe our hearts and minds can be made new this day.

Lord, make me an instrument of your 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.

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.


Amen.

Peace Prayer of St. Francis. Lord make me an instrument of your peace. Hello Lovely Studio. #prayer #peace #inspiration #spirituality
Pin me – Peace Prayer of St. Francis

Peace to you right where you are.
