Prayer From The Past … François Fénelon – SURRENDER

I pray that this historic prayer will touch you and bring you closer to Him.

PRAYER OF SURRENDER

My God, I want to give myself to you. Give me the courage to do this. My spirit within me sighs after you. Strengthen my will. Take me. If I don’t have the strength to give You everything, then draw me by the sweetness of Your love. Lord, who do I belong to, if not to You? What a horror to belong to myself and to my passions! Help me to find all my happiness in You, for there is no happiness outside of You.
Why am I afraid to break out of my chains? Do the things of this world mean more to me than You? Am I afraid to give myself to You? What a mistake! It is not even I who would give myself to You, but You who would give Yourself to me. Take my heart.
What joy it is to be with You, to be quiet so that I might hear Your voice! Feed me and teach me out of Your depths. Oh God, You only make me love You. Why should I fear to give You everything and draw close to You? To be left to the world is more frightening than this! Your mercy can overcome any obstacle. I am unworthy of You, but I can become a miracle of Your grace.

Help us grow in our faith and in our trust in You. You are without question our only hope, but we need Your help to increase our faith and help our unbelief so we can truly rest in Your secret place. In Jesus’ name and in the power of the Holy Spirit, amen.
