This prayer helps me to quiet my mind and hear what God needs me to hear. God speaks to me when my mind is open and willing, that can’t happen when my mind is filled with a million different things that are happening around me. So I stop and listen to this song or I read the prayer……sometimes I just think about it! Whatever it takes to get my mind ready to receive.
Here are the words to the prayer and below the prayer is a video of Susan Boyle singing “Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace” Just close your eyes and listen.
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;
and 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.
