The Prayer of Abandonment

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 creatures.
I wish no more than this, Lord.
I offer myself 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.

Sourced from “Travelling along the Anglican Way” Brother Charles de Foucauld of the Little Brothers of Jesus – 2004:39
