Prayer of Abandon

“Father, into Your hands I commend my spirit” Lk 23.46.

“This is the last prayer of our Master, of our Beloved...may it be ours...And may it not only be that of our last moment, but of all our moments.”

Translation :


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.

This prayer is the shared prayer of all those who claim a relationship with Charles de Foucauld, everywhere in the world; that is why it has been translated into many languages.

Charles did not write it quite as it is appears now: it was taken from a larger meditation, written in 1896, in which he sought to join with the prayer of Jesus on the cross.
