Surrender prayer


I abandon myself into your hands.

Do with me what you will.

Whatever you may do, I thank you.

I am ready for all, I accept all.

 Let only your will be done in me and in all your creatures.

I wish no more than this, O Lord.

 Into your hands I commend my soul.

I offer it to you with all the love of my heart,

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.


Charles de Foucauld
