My Life, Your Life

Christ, help me to live a holy life—
deliver me, Lord, from the traps
laid for me by our enemy the Devil;
forgive me of my depraved and
lascivious desires, my lack of self-
restraint: make me a holy vessel
that is useful to you. Christ enter
my heart and crucify me to the world
that centres man, flesh machine,
in the clockwork of his own galaxy—
take from me self-sufficiency and
make me wholly dependent on you—
your grace, Lord, is good, I thank you
for your blood, your water, your Spirit.
Christ please make me humble, not
self-aggrandising and overambitious—
my life is yours to do with as you like,
your will is always good and I am
standing at the ready for your command,
Christ deliverer, the only one I love,
my maker and my Father, amen.
