Traditional Prayers for Anglican Catholics
         
         
   

In the hands of the Lord

My Father,
I abandon myself to you.
Do with me as you will.
Whatever you may do with me I thank you.
I am prepared for anything.
I accept everything,
provided your will is fulfilled in me and in all creatures.
I ask for nothing more, my God.
I place my soul in your hands.
I give it to you, my God, with all the love of my heart,
because I love you.
And for me it is a necessity of love,
this gift of myself,
this placing of myself in your hands without reserve
in boundless confidence,
because you are my Father. Amen.


Charles de Foucauld (1858-1916)
