potteryI found this prayer in a little books of prayers by Joan Copeland. It spoke to me because I sense that we are in the midst of being re-shaped by God into something new and fresh. We need to allow him to do his work even though the process might prove uncomfortable.

You are the Potter, Lord,
and we the clay.
My life is like a shelf of little pots.
Many are ugly
and misshapen things.
They need to be remade,
re-thrown by you,
stamped with your Name.
But in the end
You, Lord, must take them all,
mould them together
in one single lump,
throw them upon your wheel,
fire with your love,
fill with your Spirit.
Then shall I be whole.
A fitting vessel for your glory,
Lord. Amen.
