The prayer that comes from truly believing in The Father heart of God….

This prayer of Charles de Foucauld searched my soul and refreshed me today.  This is what being like God’Son means: The Father’s will is what  I accept and surrender to with meekness and intentionally embrace and  humbly pursue. A crucified person has no further plans of their own. They can curse God for what is happening or say, “Father into thy hands I commit myself. I entrust   to you the very depths of my being.”

…and now the 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,
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 Foucauld
