Prayer: O Potter God

Here’s a prayer of commitment inspired by Jeremiah 18:1-11 and Isaiah 64:8.  It was written by Philip Culbertson.

(inspired by Jeremiah 18:1-11, Isaiah 64:8)

O Potter God,
what a wonderful world you have made out of wet mud,
and what beautiful men and woman.
And we thank you, God,
for initiating the co-creation of this marvelous world with us.
As your hands twirl us round and round and touch us everywhere,
shape us to be the most beautiful creation we can be,
so that together, we and you,
can model for others how wonderful it can be
to be the work of your hands.  Amen.
