Prayer For Peace
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!
Oh, Divine Master
Grant that I may seek not so much 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.
An Indian Prayer
Oh, Great Spirit,
Whose voice I hear in the winds,
And whose breath gives life to all the world, hear me!
I am small and weak, I need your strength and wisdom.
Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever behold
the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things you have made
and my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make me wise so I may understand the things
you have taught my people.
Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in
every leaf and rock.
I seek strength not to be greater than my brother,
but to fight my greatest enemy, myself.
Make me always ready to come to you with clean hands
and straight eyes.
So when life fades, as the fading sunset, my spirit may come
to you without shame.
"This one was my mother Nona's favorite. She is somewhere in God's Hands now."
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face, the rains fall soft upon your fields and, until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His Hand
