Patil and Uttarakhand Governor Margaret Alva quoted the prayer almost fully in their prepared texts.

The prayer starts "Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love, where there is injury, pardon". It goes on to urge "where there is despair, hope and where there is sadness, joy".

It ends with "For it is in giving that we receive, it is pardoning, that we are pardoned and it it is in dying that we are born to eternal life".

St Francis' prayer has been praised by leaders of different periods and nations, including Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela.

Even Russian revolutionary leader Vladmir Lenin, who came to know about the prayer in his last days, is reported to have appreciated its sentiments.
