Abandonment Prayer

Abandonment Prayer


Father, 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 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,

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.


Charles de Foucault
