School Prayer

School Prayer

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.

 

Grant that we 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
