Take Me, Break Me
(a prayer)
by Steve Laube

Take my eyes Lord.

Strike me blind.

* * *

Then heal me Lord
That I may see with Your eyes.

 

Take my hands Lord.
Crush every bone.

* * *

Then heal me Lord
That I may touch with Your tenderness.

 

Take my ears Lord.
Deafen me.

* * *

Then heal me Lord
That I may hear with Your sensitivity.

 

Take my feet Lord.
Amputate without hesitation.

* * *

Then heal me Lord
That I may walk only on Your path.

 

Take my tongue Lord.
Sever it.

* * *

Then heal me Lord
That I speak only with Your words.

 

Take my life Lord.
End it
Please.

* * *

Then resurrect me Lord
That I may have life only in You.

 

Hear my prayer.
