my prayer – my intentional actions of living as a human, being . . .

SunriseMake me a channel of peace,
that where there is hatred, I may bring love;
that where t
here is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness;
that where there is discord, I may bring harmony;
that where there is error, I may bring truth;
that where there is doubt, I may bring faith;
that where there is despair, I may bring hope;
that where there are shadows, I may bring light;
that where there is sadness, I may bring joy.
grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted;
to understand, than to be understood;
to love, than to be loved.
For it is by self-forgetting that one finds.
It is by forgiving that one is forgiven.
It is by surrendering that one awakens to the great mysteries of life as a human being.
