Lent Meditation: Surrendering Self (Week 2)

Miss the first practice in this series? Meditate here!

Over the next few weeks in our Lent Prayer Meditation series, we’ll embrace Jesus’ invitation to surrender, and in this practice in particular, surrendering our self.

We draw from the words of 18th Century Jesuit Priest Jean Pierre de Caussade who wrote

“What God requires of the soul is the essence of self-surrender. The free gifts he asks from us are self-denial, obedience and love. The rest is his business.”

As an anchor for our meditation, we repeat this refrain:

“Everything is yours, everything is from you and for you.”

May this practice in stillness, silence, and solitude draw your heart ever closer to God’s as we throw off the sin that so easily entangles.
