HAVING A ROUGH TIME? SAY A PRAYER OF ABANDONMENT TO GOD.
This is what Our Lord Jesus did on the Cross. When the burden is too heavy, let us learn to abandon our problems… our life to God, with a filial trust in His Providence: “Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit!”
In this regard, St. Josemaria taught a beautiful prayer which you might want to repeat as well:
“You said to me: Father, I am having a very rough time.
In answer I whispered in your ear: Take upon your shoulders a small part of that cross, just a tiny part. And if you can ‘t manage that then… leave it entirely on the strong shoulders of Christ. And from this moment on, repeat with me:
My Lord and my God:
into your hands I abandon
the past and the present and the future,
what is small and what is great,
what amounts to a little and what amounts to a lot,
things temporal and things eternal.”
I assure you, peace and serenity will invade your soul.
