And that’s the only hope for you and me and this crazy world that we live in.

Young Levi & Lia Mullen retell the good news of the Gospel — the Easter story — and it’s never been cuter.

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.

People said I’d never be anything.

They said I was too broken.

They said I had too many scars.

I was so dead in my sin, but when I acknowledged who I was and who God is, I came alive.

~ Darren Mulligan of We are Messengers

In 2003, Darren left his upbringing, his home country of Ireland, and his longtime girlfriend Heidi for America. He wanted to chase fame and fortune in the world of heavy rock as a guitarist. 

Heidi called him one day to tell him she’d become a Christian.

Anger filled his heart and spewed out on Heidi for three months.  [Read more…]
