It Is in Questioning That We Find Answers

Make me an instrument of peace
Where there is hatred, let me know love
Where there is injury, healing
Where there is doubt, reassurance
Where there is challenge, compassion
Where there is pain, rest

O Divine Mother,
Grant that I may
Not so much seek to control as to co-create,
To be understood, as to understand myself,
To be admired, as to be seen.

For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in questioning that we find answers
And it is in honoring ourselves that we live to our Highest Good

Blessed Be.

Helen Rose calls her prayer a Pagan retelling of the Prayer of St. Francis.
