Pray For Peace (Re-post)

I think this is actually the second re-post of this, and I've posted the prayer on the prayer blog before, but I think it's very relevant right now, so I added some pics and put it up again...peace...



THE
PRAYER
OF
SAINT
FRANCIS
OF
ASSISI




"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;














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."

Thanks Bishop and I will. I shared a message with Pastor DE similiar to this earlier this week. I believe that we are in the right time, at the right moment to see a shift, if we would only pray and submit to the Lordship of Christ.

A little late, but "awesome service" Sunday. Unbelievable how busy I am now (I know you can relate and I probably don't have any idea) but anyway; I really appreciate all that you and DE are doing....PRAISE GOD!

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be prayed for as to pray for.

Peace to Afghanistan...peace to Christina, Daisson and family.
