Prayer of St. Francis::

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;
Lord, may I not so much seek to be
consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
Because it is in giving that we receive,
in pardoning that we are pardoned,
in dying that we are born to eternal life

—-

This is prayer filled with purposeful focus.  Its yearning is cross-cultural; and its answer is revolutionary.  Let this be the desire of my heart, in accordance with ever-increasing dependence on Christ . . . all for His glory.  

Amen and Amen
