´╗┐PRAYER ATTRIBUTED TO SAINT FRANCIS



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.

Amen.

STEWARDSHIP PRAYER

 

Generous God,  i give thanks to you for the gifts that you have given me, my life, my family, my friends- time, talents, and material possessions.

All that I have comes from you. Help me to remember this and rejoice in your goodness.

Walk with me my God. Help me on my spiritual journey, so that I may constantly renew my relationship with you and all the good people in our parish and throughout Long Island. Renew in me your Spirit. Give me the strength and courage to be a better follower of Jesus, to be a disciple. Help me to hear the call to "Come, follow Me".

I give glory to you my God, as I make stewardship a way of life.

Amen
