Make Me a Channel of Your Peace

Dear people who seek to ask God to make them channels of His peace,
The song by St. Francis of Assissi, starts, “Make me a channel of your peace…”
Here is a picture that can add to the request of that song from God.


Roy Lawrence in his book “Make me a Channel” shows that to be a channel you must be a receptacle first of all. In other words you must receive in order to channel. You can also ask to be a channel of…

  • Forgiveness
  • Kindness
  • God’s Love
  • Healing
  • Truth
  • Freedom
  • Hope
  • Faith
  • Joy
  • Generosity in Giving
  • Jesus
  • The Fruit of the Holy Spirit
  • Eternal Life
  • …. and the list is actually endless.
    Do be a channel for God’s Grace and Working in the world.

Be Thankful List


Here is a small challenge to you. Sit and think and then make a list of all the things you should be thankful for. This should fill at least 4 or 5 pages with things to thank God for. Once you have written your list, then pray the list and give God thanks for all the things you have written and for the things you have forgotten.
This process is not only for the kids and youngsters, but a wonderful exercise for us all.Here is a list of adult things to give thanks for in relation to our children.
