This prayer is found in the Valley of Vision. Christians often sing songs like this and sometimes pray such things. But I suspect we rarely know what it is we pray: 

O FOUNTAIN OF ALL GOOD, 

Destroy in me every lofty thought, 

Break pride to pieces and scatter it to the winds, 

Annihilate each clinging shred of self-righteousness, 

Implant in me true lowliness of spirit, 

Abase me to self-loathing and self-abhorrence, 

Open in me a fount of penitential tears, 

Break me, then bind me up; 

Thus will my heart be a prepared dwelling for my God;
