Christian Perspective

- Keith Goudie -

To those among us who recently lost loved ones, we offer the prayer of St. Francis of Assisi. May it be a comfort to you. To those who are ill or suffering in any way, may the prayer be a light to you in their thoughts and prayers.

“Lord make me an instrument of Your peace; Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; and where is sadness, joy. 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.”

This universal prayer will be found in Afrikaans in Liedboek – Nr.284.
