THE LORD'S PRAYER
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from all evil.Amen
PRAYER OF ST.FRANCIS
Lord, make me an Instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is discord, union;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope,
Where there is darkness, light;
And 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. Amen
God our friend, mother and father, may you be praised in your diversity of name and forms by the whole universe !
May we experience a world guided by your values of justice, fraternity, equality, freedom, peace, hope and love!
May your will be the motive force of all our dreams and actions !
Give us our daily food for body, mind and soul !
Strengthen us to forget and forgive without counting the cost !
Forgive us our offences as we forgive those who offended us in the past. Bless all those who offend us now with your peace !
Strengthen us always to stand for truth without fear and walk in the path of light with hope, trust, optimism and creativity !
Protect us from all evil forces and liberate us from hatred, despair and depression
