Thanksgiving Prayer – November 2002 – by Nancy Sliwa

In Nancy's Writings, Faith and Religion 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.


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.
