A Prayer to End Nigerian Terrorism

O God, look after those affected by terrorism. Soften the hearts of those who inflict violence on others. Grant courage to those who face terrorism.

We pray for peace and an end to suffering by Father John O'Brien, OFM Profiles in Catholicism


Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi


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 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.
