Franciscan Morning Prayer

For the last couple of years, I have been reading and learning about St. Francis. One of the books I picked up was called the Secular Franciscan Companion.

This morning I came across the Franciscan morning prayer. Let me share that with you:

“Jesus Lord, I offer you

this new day because

I believe in you, love you,

hope all things in you

and thank you for

your blessings.

I am sorry for having

offended you and

forgive everyone who

has offended me.

Lord, look on me and

leave in me

peace and courage

and your humble wisdom

that I may serve others

with joy, and be

pleasing to you all day.”

— From the Secular Franciscan Companion, compiled and edited by Marion A. Haif, O.F.M. (Franciscan Herald Press: Cincinnati, Ohio) 1987.
