Thanksgiving Prayer – November 2002 – by Nancy Sliwa

God our Father, in thanksgiving for all You have given us, we offer the great prayer of Francis of Assisi:

Lord, make us instruments of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let us 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 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;
It is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

In the precious name of  Your son Jesus Christ, Amen.
