I offer you everything
I do this day -
my thoughts, works, joys and
to join my heart this day
to the heart of your Son,
who gave himself up totally to your
and to the service of others.
Give me your Spirit
so that I can live like him,
joined to his offering
in the Eucharist.
Father, I abandon myself into Your hands;
do with me what You will.
Whatever You do I thank You.
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only Your will be done in me,
as in all Your creatures,
I ask no more than this, my Lord.
Into Your hands I commend my soul;
I offer it to You, O Lord,
with all the love of my heart,
for I love You, my God, and so need to give myself--
to surrender myself into Your hands,
without reserve and with total confidence,
for You are my Father.
-Brother Charles de Foucauld
All this day, O Lord,
Let me touch as many lives as possible
and every life I touch, do thou by thy
holy spirit, quicken,
whether through the word I speak,
the prayer I breathe, or the life I live.
