Peace ~ Lord, Make us instruments of your peace

Prayer of St Francis

Lord, Make us instruments of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let your love increase
Lord, make us instruments of your peace,
Walls of pride and prejudice shall cease
When we are your instruments of peace.

Where there is hatred, we will show his love
Where there is injury, we will never judge
Where there is striving, we will speak his peace
To the millions crying for release,
We will be his instruments of peace

Lord, Make us instruments of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let your love increase
Lord, make us instruments of your peace,
Walls of pride and prejudice shall cease
When we are your instruments of peace.

Where there is blindness, we will pray for sight
where there is darkness, we will shine his light
Where there is sadness, we will bear their grief
To the millions crying for relief,
We will be your instruments of peace.

This hymn has been adapted from the original prayer I learned at school and it has been filtering through my head all day. Thank you for all those in Manchester who have shown that love prevails in their generosity and kindness.

Do listen to this. It is so beautiful.

Lord Make us Instruments of your Peace

    Thank you, Diana. I needed that today . . . to be reminded to be an instrument of peace. The video was tender and beautiful. I shared on my Facebook.

  3. It just seemed perfect for the moment Pat. Thanks for sharing.

      It did, Diana, especially in the aftermath of the Manchester bombing. I’m so sorry – my heart hurts along with all of you. God bless you, my friend.
