You Are Holy…Francis of Assisi

This morning I was reading through some writings and prayers of Francis of Assisi. I enjoy entering into Francis’ journey of seeing God through His creation. A bird, a flowing stream, the sound of crickets at night…all these things centered the mind and heart of Francis on the sovereign God who created all things and gives life to all things. Here is a great prayer offering from Francis. Choose to slow, pause and be still and allow God to speak through his prayer.

You are holy,
O my Lord and only God,
mysterious and holy,
holy and amazing!

You are mighty, magnificent, transcendent.
You are all-powerful,
O most holy Creator,
beneficent ruler of heaven and earth.

You are manifold and One at the same time,
Lord God,
You are utterly wonderful.
You are wonderful, perfectly wonderful,
the very essence of all that is most wonderful,
O Lord God!
You are real and alive.

You are generosity and wisdom,
humility and patience,
safety and serenity,
ecstasy and delight.

You are righteousness and balance,
prosperity that surpasses all basic needs,
you are harmony and beauty.

You are my protector, guardian, and defender.
You are my strength.
You are my sustenance and my courage.

You are faith, hope, and charity.
You are my deepest tenderness.
You are everlasting vitality.

O supreme and marvelous Lord,
Almighty God,
Beloved redeemer,
You are absolute mercy.

~St. Francis of Assisi
