"Peace Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi" is also called "Make Me an Instrument of Your Peace." In this prayer, the worshipper reflects on how he must first change himself, how he acts towards others and how he acts towards God.

"Serenity Prayer" is used by Alcoholics Anonymous and other 12-step programs. Written by Reinhold Niebuhr in the early 1930s, the prayer provides comfort to worshippers in times of turmoil by encouraging acceptance, courage and wisdom. It also reminds worshippers to put their faith in God.

"The Lord's Prayer" is also called "Pater Noster" or "Our Father." Jesus taught his disciples to pray using "The Lord's Prayer," according to the New Testament. Worshippers can find a long version of the prayer in the Gospel of Matthew during the Sermon on the Mount, and a shorter version in the Gospel of Luke. The prayer sets the pattern that worshippers should follow when praying. Its purpose is to remind Christians to banish fear and self-will and submit themselves to the will of God while thanking him for the good things in their lives.
