During our worship service yesterday, we used this video called A Prayer to the Potter. It made a nice transition during our song set, but it also a good prayer for our week. It is easy to get caught up in the details and to-do lists, the successes and disappointments and forget who is ultimately in charge.
Here is the prayer:
Father, You are the potter. You carve me with purpose. I am sculpted in Your hands. Your work is perfect.
Your design is carved into every event in my life. Form me to be the person you want me to be.
I seek Your Spirit to guide my decisions. I seek your Son to model the example.
I seek Your Word to mold my heart. Let my passion be Your pleasure. Let my work build Your Kingdom.
Let my worship fill Your heart. I am beautiful because of You, yet you O Lord are our Father.
We are the clay. You are the Potter. We are the work of You hand. Amen.
