Prayer for Abandonment
Lord, help me to trust in you completely
The original text found in the spiritual journal of brother marie-alberico, a trappist monk, then brother charles of jesus (Charles of foucauld)
“ Lk 23:46: “ Father, into your hands I commend my spirit”
"It is the last prayer of our Master, of our Beloved... may it be ours also... May it not only be the prayer of our last moment but that of all our moments:
My Father, I surrender myself into your hands;
My Father, I trust in you;
My Father, I abandon myself to you.
My Father, do with me whatever you may will.
Whatever you may do, I thank you:
Thank you for everything
I am ready for all, I accept all, and I thank you for everything,
so that your will be done in me, my God;
so that your will be done in all your creatures,
in all your children, in all those whom your Heart loves.
I wish no more than this, my God.
Into your hands I commend my soul:
I offer it to you, my God, with all the love of my heart,
for I love you, Lord, and so I need to give myself out of love,
to surrender myself into your hands without reserve;
I surrender myself into your hands with boundless confidence,
for you are my Father.
