Prayer of Abandonment To God

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 You
With 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
