The Prayer of Abandonment.

 

This prayer, frequently used by the majority of the Jesus Caritas Fraternity, is part of a longer meditation on the passion of Christ Charles wrote while he was a Trappist monk.  He commented: ""It is the last prayer of our Master, of our Beloved... may it be ours... May it not only be the prayer of our last moment but that of all our moments."

 

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 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,
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.
