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.
Lord, as our team prayers this Prayer to St. Francis, help us to take seriously the call to be an individual sharing peace, love, hope and joy on our team. Through this individual commitment and collectively as a team, we can grow to be an invincible force for good in our world. This will be our ultimate Victory.
