Prayer of Abandonment

Father,
I abandon myself into your hands,
do with me what you will.
Whatever you may do, I shall always thank you.
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only your will be done in me and in all your creatures;
no more do I wish than this, O Lord.

Into your hands I commend my soul.
I offer 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 without reserve,
and with boundless confidence,
for you are my Father.

– Blessed Charles de Foucauld
