The Peace Prayer, usually associated with St. Francis of Assisi, is a popular traditional prayer. Download a coloring page to use in introducing or meditating on this prayer’s famous first line, “Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.” The Spanish version, “Señor, haz de mí un instrumento de tu paz,” is also available as a coloring page.
The Peace Prayer is part of Finding God and Christ Our Life sessions in fourth and eighth grades and is appropriate to introduce to young people at any time. It’s especially useful today, in our troubled world. Adults may wish to use the coloring page as a reflective experience, perhaps while listening to a recording of a musical version of the prayer.
