Prayer for the Acceptance of God’s Will

 

Our Lord, I don’t know what to ask from You. You alone know what I need.

You love me more than I know how to love myself. Father, give to your servant what I do not even know to ask you for. Help me to recognize my real needs for the future. I do not dare to ask either for a burden or for a consolation, but I only stand here in front of You with my heart open to You.

You can see my needs that I cannot see, so visit me and act based on Your abundant mercy. Strike and heal me; cast me down and raise me up. I tremble and I am silent in front of Your Holy Will and Your decisions about me.  I offer myself as a sacrifice to You. I have no other desire inside of me that to fulfill Your will. Teach me to pray.

Come Yourself in me to pray.

Amen.
