Prayer of Abandonment

Father, I abandon myself
into Your hands.
Do with me what You will,
whatever You do, I will thank You,
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only Your will be done in me,
as in all Your creatures,
and I'll ask nothing else, my Lord.

Into Your hands I commend my spirit;
I give it to Youwith all the love of my heart,
for I love You, Lord,and so need to give myself,
to surrender myself into Your hands
with a trust beyond all measure,
because You are my Father.

Charles de Foucauld
