JANUARY MISSION PRAYER
We continue to pray for God’s help throughout the world, our country, and our local communities and for His healing, protection, comfort, and wisdom in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic. We lift our prayers to our gracious God and give thanks for His inspiration in the discovery of vaccines and treatments.
In addition, this month the theme for our mission prayer is peace. Pray for peace in our homes and families; in our communities, towns, and cities; in our country; and, in the world. We pray for peace among all the nations and peoples of the world. As an aid, printed below is a version of what is known as the Peace Prayer of Saint Francis:
“Lord, make me an instrument of thy 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;
It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life.”
