    This is a little prayer I came across this morning and wanted to share:


    Make Me an Instrument of Your Peace

    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,
    not so much to be understood as to understand,
    not so much to be loved, as to love;
    for it is in giving that we receive,
    it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
    it is in dying that we awake to eternal life.

    Hey, that poem was written by St. Francis Asissi! We used to recite and sing that poem in high school (a public school at that!) Take that, politicans!

    ETA: The name of the poem is Eternal Life. Thank you so much for sharing this poem with us. It uplifts me.

    I wonder if someone can find a music file of a choir singing this, it is the most beautiful choral song ever. Thank you, again, Shalom.

    :( I can't stand Rutter as a composer. He likes making women sound like boys.

    Members, this prayer is an awesome to say each morning. Try it daily for a week and watch the blessings come. God bless.
