I had a good break with my family – time away from the office and technology… and I return to the blog with this Sunday morning prayer, originally offered by Charles de Foucauld, a man I admire; a man like me who was a warrior who left that work to pursue ministry (but in the 19th century). Maybe that’s why his prayer touches me so deeply…
PRAYER OF ABANDONMENT TO GOD
Father, I abandon myself into Your hands. Do with me what You will; Whatever You do, I 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 commit my spirit; I freely 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!
