The government has avoided a major defeat on its Brexit bill by 324 votes to 298 after a late concession.
She said unless there was a "meaningful vote" Parliament would be left with "the grim choice between a poor deal and exit with no deal at all". "It enables parliament to dictate to the government their course of action in worldwide negotiations". Her mission is clear: to find a way to unite the warring Brexit factions in her party before they derail the government.
Lawmakers backed a government plan, ending a rebellion that would have challenged May's authority at a time when she is increasingly under pressure to move ahead with all-but stalled Brexit talks in Brussels by offering a more detailed plan.
Theresa May was forced into a major compromise yesterday when she had to agree to give parliament a greater role in Brexit negotiations to avert a defeat at the hands of rebels from her own party who want to keep close European Union ties after Britain leaves.
The House of Lords amended the Bill so that if MPs reject the deal, they can direct ministers to go back and renegotiate.
"It has got to be done in good faith, because without that, we will face a situation where in fact, firstly, the other place will put it back in and secondly the goodwill will be gone when it comes back to this house", leading rebel Dominic Grieve told lawmakers.
Anna Soubry, a pro-EU Conservative lawmaker, said she knew of one legislator who would not vote with their conscience because of "threats to their personal safety" and that of staff and family.
Grieve proposed the government be forced to seek parliamentary approval for its strategy if it has not agreed a Brexit deal by the end of November.
The two sides had slightly different versions of the deal they had reached.
The government will now enter talks with rebels about accepting a new amendment which would give MPs an effective veto on the Brexit deal May secures from the EU.

Saudi Arabia, UAE, launch attack on Yemen's port city of Hudaida

"The Government's amendment today provides for a meaningful vote".
Tory MPs are to discuss with ministers what will happen in the event of a no-deal Brexit - amid calls for Theresa May to honour "assurances" to them.
"The government can not demonstrate the flexibility necessary for a successful deal if its hands are tied midway through that process", he said.
"We must under all circumstances respect the result of the referendum", Brexit Secretary David Davis told lawmakers as he opened the debate.
The concession means MPs could be given power to prevent Britain leaving the European Union without a deal.
The European Union Withdrawal Bill, a complex piece of legislation meant to disentangle Britain from four decades of EU rules and regulations, has had a rocky ride through Parliament.
I am concerned obviously because amendment 19 from the House of Lords was defeated yesterday and any derivative of it is an unashamed wrecking motion to Brexit.
There is little May can do. May's preferred approach is temporarily keeping the U.K.in some form of temporary customs union with the E.U., but this is unacceptable to hardline Brexiteers in her party.
No. There will be plenty more chances for upsets as separate Bills on customs and trade come before MPs next month, followed by legislation on future immigration rules later in the year and a Withdrawal Agreement and Implementation Bill once the final Brexit deal is struck.
Earlier May suffered a setback when junior justice minister Phillip Lee, who has always been critical of Brexit strategy, resigned and said he would vote against the government.
