 Intro: I was given a book (thanks Laura! who is one of our lead team) called Let Go which featured 40 prayers written by Fenelon back in the late 1600's.  I found the first few prayers / devotions very impactful and wanted to share them with you all.  Every couple days I will post a new one.  If you would like to read these prayers on your own click here.  Update: I will be posting two letters a week on Tuesday and Thursday.

LETTER VI. The true source of peace is in the surrender of the will.

Remain in peace; the fervor of devotion does not depend upon yourself; all that lies in your power is the direction of your will. Give that up to God without reservation. The important question is not how much you enjoy religion, but whether you will whatever God wills. Humbly confess your faults; be detached from the world, and abandoned to God; love Him more than yourself, and his glory more than your life; the least you can do is to desire and ask for such a love. God will then love you and put his peace in your heart.
