Inspired by St Francis Of Assisi prayer"Lord Make me an instrument of thy peace" Thank you St Francis

Creator, Source, I am an instrument of thy Peace
You have created me as such
And by your Grace my very presence this will be
As I move throughout your creation
Anywhere hatred has coiled itself around the rose of your garden
Moving itself deep within its root
This instrument I will use
To uproot and let loose
And in its place your Divine Love I will sow
Creator, I am an instrument of thy Peace


As we travel this human journey
Asleep in a dream of discontent and lack
We may without thought injure our brothers and sisters
Grant me the vision and the humility of spirit
To offer pardon and assist in the pardoning
The One the Only One an instrument of thy peace I am, Yes I am


When your creation look up and look out.
Look below and all about
And all that can be seen is despair
With hearts fill with despondency and disconsolate
Like the Christ who fed the five thousand with five loaves and two fishes
Or your beautiful sun consistently rising and setting as if on queue
Fill me with your miracle of hope
So that I may sow it forth
Running like molten lava burning hope through everything and everyone
Lord I am an instrument of thy peace I am
Yes I am


Darker than the midnight sky is the darkness that can permeate the human heart
Our minds become cloudy and our thoughts fill with gloom
In those moments divine One
A lighthouse I will be
Place on top of the highest mountain  shining your light so strong and pure
Melting away the darkness like the sun kissing the snow flakes
Lord an instrument of peace I am, oh yes I am


As clouds roll cross the sky
And raindrops fall and dampen the earth
So sadness rolls across the hearts of your creation
And teardrops fall and dampen the cheeks and make the spirit heavy
Fill me with the warmth of your Divine Sun
So that when I open my eyes, my mouth, and my hands
Warmth will flow in and through me
Drying up all the dampen cheeks and bringing lightness to the spirit
Divine Creator I am an instrument of thy peace, yes I am


My Divine Master grant me the humility of spirit
To make service my one and only goal
Then in doing so I will seek only to give consolation
To sit and be still with open heart and listen with divine ear
So that I may truly understand and look not at being understood
To be fill to completeness with Divine Love
Letting it flow in and through me
Like a rive flowing into the ocean of life
Let me give without expectation
Knowing, truly knowing that as I give that is my receiving
And as I pardon so like unto self
And as I give my life away I live eternally
Divine Source, Divine Creator
I was created to be an instrument of thy peace.
Oh yes I was, I Am.
