Eknath Easwaran, the author of Passage Meditation, suggests this prayer as a good text for beginning passage meditation.

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;

And where there is sadness, joy;

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.
