Ginoo, himoa ako nga subayanan sa imong kalinaw,
kon anaa ang kasuko, magdala akog gugma
kon anaa ang kasakit, magdala ako ug pasaylo
kon anaa ang panag- away, magdala ako ug kahusay
kon anaa ang sayop, magdala ako ug kamatuoran
kon anaa ang pagduda, magdala ako ug pagsalig
kon anaa ang kahiubos, magdala ako ug paglaum
kon anaa ang kangitngnit, magdala akoug kahayag
kon anaa ang kasubo, magdalaako ug kalipay.


O Ginoo, tugoti nga ako ang molingaw ug dili maoy lingawon,
mosabot, ug dili maoy sabton
magmahal, ug dili maoy mahalon.
Pinaagi sa paglimot sa kaugalinon nga ang tawo makakaplag,
Pinaagi sa pagpasaylo nga ang tawo pasayloon
Kong mamatay ang tawo momata ngadto sa kinabunhing dayon.


A Translation of a Prayer Attributed to St Francis.

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.



I was truly inspired after reading and embracing this prayer my friend Keith sent to my e-mail. You see how truly god God is for letting us realize a lot of things in life despite of the big bad wolves around us, helping us to unclutter all our burdens and problems in life and giving and sharing what we have. Thus, I would also like to share it with you wholeheartedly in Christ. Lets walk together hand in hand with Jesus Christ our Lord and say this prayer.

Sometimes Christians are called to turn the world upside down. To bring the exact opposite of what we find in our world. St. Francis' prayer is a bold one, asking for strength to give of ourselves to meet the needs of others. He recognizes that it "is in giving that we receive", that as we give of ourselves, we receive the peace and blessing of our risen Lord Jesus. We cannot earn eternal life, but that we are pardoned from the sins that block our claim on it.
Think about the situations that you are involved in that require peace, consolation, hope, light and joy. Then, if you're bold enough, pray the prayer!

Have you ever wondered why louis vuitton bags make so many of the same style of bags, just in different colors or material? I often wondered that same question until it hit me one day, while standing in the rain, clutching my louis handbags to my chest, like it was a baby. Designers know that some particular Damier Azur are not meant to be worn at particular times. You can never go wrong with owning more than one Damier Canvas .
