As I Live

As I live every day,
I want to be a channel for peace.
May I bring love where there is hatred
and healing where there is hurt;
joy where there is sadness
and hope where there is fear.

I pray that I may always try
to understand and comfort other people
as well as seeking comfort and understanding from them.

Wherever possible
may I choose to be
a light in the darkness
a help in times of need
and a caring, honest friend.

And may justice, kindness, and peace
flow from my heart forever.
