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 highest good.
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
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.
