PRAYER OF ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI: PRAYER FOR PEACE  Lord, make me an instrument of your 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 seek not so much 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.

Stewards of the Gospel Prayer Merciful our world. Through your Son, who shares our humanity, you have called us to participate in your divine creativity and to build the kingdom of God here on earth. Form us, we pray, as one community under the leadership of our Bishop Alan, to serve the people of our Diocese of Brentwood. Inspire us to discover new ways to spread the joy of the Gospel. Open our eyes to see Christ in others, especially the poor, the sick and the marginalised. Empower us to be the hands and feet of Christ in our parishes and communities. Help us to welcome all into His embrace. Guide us in our discernment. Give wisdom to our Stewards of the Gospel who will help us in each parish to see new paths of possibility: for a spirit of mission that invigorates our every effort; and for the strength to be unafraid of what is new. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
