Another prayer from Celtic Daily Prayer. It is by Charles de Foucauld.
Father, I abandon myself
into Your hands.
Do with me what You will,
whatever You do, I will 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 commend my spirit;
I 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.
This moved me in some profound ways. What a beautiful reminder that we need to surrender ourselves into the loving hands of our Father. I have need to fall into my earthly Father and Mother’s hands for a loving embrace why would I not have the same need with my Father and Mother in heaven?
