A Prayer

Destroy me, Lord.
Take away all that I am,
Remove my labels and boundaries.
Have mercy on me.

Destroy me, Christ.
Dissolve my illusions,
Crush my ideals and my certainties.
Have mercy on me.

Destroy me, Lord.
So that tomorrow I will see the world clearly,
The veil of my self removed.
Have mercy on me,
And on the whole world.
