Prayer of abandonment by Charles de Foucauld who will be canonized on Sunday May 15 in Rome by Pope Francis


My Father, I surrender myself to you,

Do with me what you will.

Whatever you do with me, I thank you.

I am ready for anything, I accept everything.

Provided your will is done in me, in all your creatures, I desire nothing else, my God.

I place my soul in your hands.

I give it to you, my God, with all the love in my heart, because I love you, and it is not a need of love to give me, to place myself in your hands, without measure, with infinite trust, for you are my Father.

Charles de Foucauld
