Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
A Prayer for Pope Francis
Lord, make him an instrument of Your peace.
A shepherd to the lost and least.
A pontiff to the poor and rich,
a pastor to the world.
Where hatred rears its ugly head
may he respond with love instead.
And may he model pardoning
when there is injury.
Where faith’s weak flame is nearly out,
help him discern the source of doubt
and offer hope to those who can’t
because of their despair.
Where darkness reigns both day and night,
help Francis to reflect the Light
who came into our sinful world
that we might see the way.
Where sadness dominates the heart
equip this pope to do his part
and demonstrate the joy of Christ
through actions, words and smiles.
