The Self-Love Prayer of St. Francis

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
and 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.

Love, make me an instrument of your pea
where there’s self hatred let me sow love
where there’s injury in me, I welcome pardon
where there’s self doubt, faith
despair, hope, darkness in me I call Light

O Divine Mother
grant that I may be consoled from within
to know and understand myself
open my heart to me
as I receive, I give to another
in pardoning myself, I am free to forgive
it is in dying to my little self, I am born
