Charles de Foucauld will soon be made a saint after a miracle was approved whereby a carpenter survived and recovered from what would ordinarily have been a catastrophic workplace accident. His prayer of abandonment which follows is a beautiful insight into his deep contemplative nature.

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.

Charles de Foucauld
