I Place My Soul in Your Hands

Below is a prayer from 19th Century explorer, Priest, and martyr, Charles de Foucauld (1858 – 1916). May it be our prayer also.

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.
