As a ministry, Saint Francis places great confidence in the power of prayer to lift us up when life becomes difficult or overwhelming. With that in mind, please feel free to request prayers for yourself or for your loved ones – whenever you feel you need spiritual strength. No matter what issues you’re struggling with, know that someone is praying for you. Your request is a sacred trust and will always be kept strictly confidential.
Sometimes, all we have are the prayers of others. “All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle.” Saint Francis of Assisi
Lord, make us instruments of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let us 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;
Where there is sadness, joy.
Grant that we 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;
