PRAYER OF SURRENDER
For this Sunday we have for
you an inspiring message from Swami taken from The Hatfield Sai
Center Magazine, March 2006 issue.
Why get agitated? Let Me take care of your business. I shall be the
One who will think about them. I am waiting for nothing else than
your surrender to Me. I intervene only when you know how to
completely surrender to Me, then you do not have to worry anymore
about anything. Say Farewell to all fears and discouragement. You
demonstrate that you do not trust Me. On the contrary, you must rely
blindly on Me.
To surrender means: to turn your thoughts away from all your
problems. Leave everything into My hands saying: Lord! Thy will be
done, Thou think of it. That is to say: Lord, I thank you for You
have taken everything in Your hands and you will resolve this for my
Remember that thinking of the consequences of a thing is contrary to
surrender; that is to say when you worry that a situation has not
had the desired outcome. You thus demonstrate that you don't believe
in My love for you. You will prove that you don't consider your life
to be under My control and that nothing escapes Me.
Never think: how is this going to end? What is going to happen? If
you give into this temptation you demonstrate that you don't trust
Me. Do you want Me to deal with it, yes or no? Then you must stop
being anxious about it. I shall guide you only if you completely
surrender to Me and when I must lead you into a different path than
the one that you expect, I carry you in My arms.
What seriously upsets you is your reasoning, your worrying, your
obsession and your will to provide for yourselves at any price. I
can do so many things when the being, as much in his material
necessities as in his spiritual ones turns to Me saying: You think
of it, and rests quietly closing his eyes. You will receive a lot,
but only when your prayer will fully rely upon Me. You pray to Me
when in pain so that I will intervene, but in the way you desire it.
You do not rely on Me, but you want me to adjust to your requests.
Don't believe like sick ones who ask the doctor to treat, all the
time suggesting the treatment to him. Do not do that, but rather,
even in sad circumstances say: Lord! I praise and thank you for this
problem, for this necessity. I pray to you to arrange things as You
please for this terrestrial and temporal life. You know very well
what is best for me.
Sometimes you feel that disasters increase instead of diminishing!
Don't get agitated. Close your eyes and tell Me with faith; Thy will
be done. Thou think of it. And when you thus speak, I even
accomplish a miracle when necessary. I only think of it when you
trust Me totally. I always think of you, but I can only help you
completely when you rely fully on Me.
With Love and Regards,
