The Prayer of St. Francis and the AA book — 12 Steps and 12 Traditions.

From the book, Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, -- The 12 and 12, we read:

"There is a direct linkage among self-examination, meditation, and prayer. Taken separately, these practices can bring much relief and benefit. But when they are logically related and interwoven, the result is an unshakable foundation for life." ~ pg 98, 12&12

Prayer of St. Francis by Sarah MacLachlan

Bill W. and the Prayer of St. Francis

Bill W., gives us a good example on page 99, of the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions book:

"Well, we might start like this. First let's look at a really good prayer...."

"Lord, make me a channel of thy peace--that where there is hatred, I may bring love--that where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness--that where there is discord, I may bring harmony--that where there is error, I may bring truth--that where there is doubt, I may bring faith--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, than to be loved. For it is by self-forgetting that one finds. It is by forgiving that one is forgiven. It is by dying that one awakens to Eternal Life. Amen." ~ Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, book: pg 99
