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

* * *

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


Hear my prayer.
