Make Me an Instrument of Your Peace

June 11, 2020

No, it is not. This well-known prayer cannot be found in any of the saint's writings. Nevertheless, it is a poem that especially calls us to prayer in these days. The prayer, particularly popular during both World Wars, is a part of many Twelve Step Programs. We know this prayer well through the singing of the hymn, Make Me a Channel of Your Peace. May these words be our prayer and a guide to our actions.

 

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;

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.

 

Pastor Joanne
