A Morning Prayer.
Verse: O Loving God, let my morning prayer rise up to you.
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
in boundless confidence
because you are my Father. (Charles de Foucauld)
Verse: Holy Spirit of God, guide my way today.
