Prayer of St. Francis
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.
In a world where you can be anything, be kind, as we are all ‘one’, be kind to yourself and be kind to others, treat others how you wish to be treated, what we energetically put ‘out there’, is returned.
Loving Kindness Meditation
You can use this meditation on yourself first, on someone or situation that is ‘neutral’ and then on a challenging individual or situation in order to restore peace.
May (insert name or situation) be filled with loving kindness,
May (insert name or situation) be well,
May (insert name or situation) be relaxed and at ease,
May (insert name or situation) be happy,
May (insert name or situation) be free from suffering.
