Lord make me an instrument of your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is discord, union;

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

where there is sadness, joy.

Oh Divine master, grant that I may not so much

seek to be consoled but 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 (attributed to St Francis of Assisi)

Lord Jesus,
Thank you that you are a light to the world,

We thank you  that your light, shines through the darkness.

Let your light shine in our cities, our towns and on our streets.

Let it bring hope and restoration..

Help us to live as children of the light.

so that  people see you in our lives, in what we say and do.
