Prayer Resources

At Heart Hospital of Lafayette, we have designed an environment of healing to set the tone for your hospital stay. Rooms are comfortable and conducive to rest, and are large enough to accommodate family and friends to support your progress. Our healing ministry includes a Catholic Chaplain, Eucharistic Ministers and Protestant Pastoral Care volunteers to minister to your spiritual needs on a routine basis.

Our Chapel of the Heart is located off the main lobby, near the Patient Care Unit. This tranquil space provides a quiet setting for those who seek a respite conducive to prayer and meditation.

Peace Prayer of St. Francis


Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
