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.
