Prayers for busy people

Here are some of my favorite prayers and meditations. I would be very interested in hearing what your favorites are. Let me know by posting it in the comments below.

Help me oh Lord to live my life so people clearly see reflections of your caring heart, your love, and purity.

Centering prayer
Peace within me, peace above me, peace below me, peace in front, peace behind me, peace beside me, peace in and through me, peace in heart of friend and stranger, peace in all I think, do and say. (Repeat with Christ within me….)

A Prayer of St. Francis
Make me a channel of your peace, where there is hatred, let me bring your love, where there is darkness, only light, where there is sadness, ever joy. Oh Master grant that I may never be, so much to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved, as to love with all my heart.

Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
