Here’s a prayer of commitment inspired by Jeremiah 18:1-11 and Isaiah 64:8. It was written by Stephen & Brooksyne Weber.
Prayer: Master Potter
(inspired by Jeremiah 18:1-11, Isaiah 64:8)
Father, too often my heart becomes hard,
unpliable, and unmoved because of my stubborn will
or due to my own ignorance.
My pride convinces me that I know best
and I become reckless along the way.
I want to trust You as the Master Potter
when You break my will to remove my imperfections.
Though it is a painful, humbling and deliberate process
I invite You to realign my heart’s desires
and reshape my will according to Your purpose.
As I go through this purifying process
help me to stand firm during the testing periods of my life.
I want to be a vessel of honor that brings glory to You.
In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
