St. Francis Prayer

Saint Francis Prayer is inspired by Saint Francis, who led a simple life without much thought to the material world. The Saint Francis Prayer reflects exactly how he lived his life and how we should strive to live ours. Among our collection of Saint Francis prayers and statues is the canvas Saint Francis Prayer plaque. Leading our line of St. Francis Prayer plaques an gift is our wood cherry plaque.  This piece was designed by Raymond Murphy and is not only beautiful to observe, its words by Saint Francis should be an inspiration to all who read the inscription. The Prayer of Saint Francis is widely believed to have been written by St. Francis of Assisi. Francis practiced what he preached and lived his life in a manner that truly reflected the teachings of Jesus Christ. The Prayer of St Francis reflects how he submitted himself to God to be used as an instrument to spread love and joy to those who knew only hate and sadness. The prayer of St. Francis is one of the most meaningful prayers ever written and reflects how St. Francis lived his life and how we should strive to live ours. See our entire collection of the Prayer of St Francis of Assisi. The founders of Darby Creek Trading are huge fans of St Francis and might even be considered Francis groupies. As such, they have created a line of various Prayer of St. Francis art that inscribes the prayer on canvas, wood, and statues. Please see all of our St. Francis Prayer Plaques, St. Francis statues, and St. Francis garden stones.


Lord, make me a channel of thy peace;
that where there is hatred, I may bring love;
that where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness;
that where there is discord, I may bring harmony;
that where there is error, I may bring truth;
that where there is doubt, I may bring faith;
that where there is despair, I may bring hope;
that where there are shadows, I may bring light;
that where there is sadness, I may bring joy.
Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted;
to understand, than to be understood;
to love, than to be loved.
For it is by self-forgetting that one finds.
It is by forgiving that one is forgiven.
It is by dying that one awakens to eternal life.
