A CLASSIC PRAYER

Lord, make me a channel for thy peace葉hat where there is hatred, I may bring love葉hat where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness葉hat where there is discord, I may bring harmony葉hat where there is error, I may bring truth葉hat where there is doubt, I may bring faith葉hat where there is despair, I may bring hope葉hat where there are shadows, I may bring light葉hat where there is sadness, I may bring joy.

Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted葉o understand, than to be understood葉o 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 dying that one awakens to Eternal Life. Amen.

TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 99

No matter where I am in my spiritual growth, the St. Francis prayer helps me improve my conscious contact with the God of my understanding.

I think that one of the great advantages of my faith in God is that I do not understand Him, or Her, or It. It may be that my relationship with my Higher Power is so fruitful that I do not have to understand.

All that I am certain of is that if I work the Eleventh Step regularly, as best I can, I will continue to improve my conscious contact, I will know His will for me, and I will have the power to carry it out.
