A Prayer for Deification

Becoming Christ in the World

Lord Jesus Christ,

Make my hands Your Hands,

My feet Your Feet,

My heart Your Heart.

Let me see with Your Eyes,

Listen with Your Ears,

Speak with Your Lips,

love with Your Heart,

Understand with Your Mind,

and serve with Your Will.

I commend to You my whole being;

make me Your other self.


Amen.
