Into Your Hands I Commend My Spirit: the Prayer of Blessed Charles de Foucauld

My Father, into your hands I commend my spirit. This is the last prayer of our master, of our Beloved.

May it be also ours: at our last moment and in every moment:

My Father, I place myself in your hands. My Father, I entrust myself to you. My Father, I abandon myself to you. My Father, do with me what you please. Whatever you make of me, I thank you. Thank you for everything. I am ready for all. I accept all. I am grateful for all. Your will be done in me, my God. Your will be done in all your creatures, all your children, all those whom your Heart loves. I do not desire anything else, 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 need to give myself to you out of love. I place myself in your hands without limits. I place my self in your hands with infinite confidence, because You are my Father. Amen. Blessed Charles de Foucauld
