DAILY PRAYER OF MOTHER THERESA

by Heidy Müller, on Tuesday, May 29, 2012 

TODAY AFTER MY CLASS I WAS SITTING BY THE OCEAN  WITH THE BIOGRAPHY OF MOTHER THERESA  – AND THERE I FOUND THIS DEEP PRAYER – AND I LIKE TO SHARE IT WITH YOU

MAKE US WORTHY,LORD, TO SERVE OUR FELLOW MEN TROUGHOUT THE WORLD WHO LIVE AND DIE IN POVERTY AND HUNGER.

GIVE THEM, THROUGH OUR HANDS , THIS DAY THEIR DAILY BREAD, AND BY OUR UNDERSTANDING LOVE, GIVE PEACE AND JOY.

LORD, MAKE ME A CHANNEL OF THY PEACE , THAT WHERE THERE IS HATRED, I MAY BRING LOVE, THAT WHERE THERE IS WRONG, MAY BRING THE SPIRIT OF FORGIVENESS ;  THAT WHERE THERE IS IS DISCORD, I MAY BRING HARMONY; THAT WHERE THERE IS ERROR I MAY BRINGTRUTH; THAT WHERE THERE IS DESPAIR, I MAY BRING HOPE; THAT WHERE THERE ARE SHADOWS, I MAY BRING LIGHT; THAT WHERE THERE IS SADNESS, I MAY BRING JOY;

LORD, GRANT THAT I MAY SEEK RATHER TO COMFORT, THAN TO BE COMFORTED, TO UNDERSTAND, THAN TO BE UNDERSTOOD, TO LOVE, THEN TO BE LOVED, FOR IT IS BY FORGETTING SELF, THAT ONE FINDS, IT IS BY FORGIVING THAT ONE IS FORGIVEN, IT IS BY DYING THAT ONE AWAKENS TO ETERNAL LIFE
