Boldness

“Abba, I abandon myself into your hands. Do with me what you will. Whatever you may do, I thank you. I am ready for all; I accept all. Let your will be done in me and in all your creatures. I wish no more than this, O Lord. Into your hands I commend my spirit. I offer it to you with all the love of my heart, for I love you. Lord, and I give myself, surrender myself into your hands without reserve, with boundless confidence, for you are my Father.”

I recently read this prayer by Charles Foucauld in Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning.

If you asked me “What is Boldness?” I would have to recite this prayer. Oh, to have the boldness to pray that I shall abandon myself to God.

What does Boldness look like to you?
