My Vision of the Potter-Lent 3, 2020

Prayer Focus: God is the Potter, I’m just clay

Almighty God, help me to see what it truly means that I am a created being.  That You formed all of mankind from the dust of the ground in essence when You created Adam and when You formed Eve from one of his ribs. Lord, we praise You for breathing life into Adam and that is how he became… a living being. We thank You for the life we have even though human sin has made our existence a world outside of Eden. We remember that ours wasn’t created to be an imperfect world with thorns and thistles, pain and suffering. No. At one point when You breathed life into Adam and placed him in Your perfect garden, everything was completely perfect, holy, and in harmony. Remind me, Lord, that You are the Potter and I’m just clay. I am the dust of the earth and You formed me in the womb just as You continue to form me for eternity. I pray You will form my character and heart so my actions will bring glory to You. May heaven forbid that my heart or actions would grieve You. Help me to remember that You are the Potter and Your plan is both perfect and wise. So when I don’t get a choice of Your will for me or my circumstance, I pray Lord that I will see You in this all and know that Your will is always good and always perfect, though sometimes I can’t see it. May I willingly and cheerfully submit myself to Your almighty hand forming me, molding me, and to use me for Your purposes in this world… to bring others to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ … to do Your work as Your hands and feet now that Jesus Christ is ascended to heaven. We thank You for the Great Commission that You have given to each of us to make disciples of all nations and to teach others–without prejudice–about who You are and about Your goodness to us all. Give me ears to hear and a mind to remember everything that You have taught us, recorded in Your Word, about the life of Jesus on Earth. May I be a willing instrument in Your hand, to be formed even as You use me to form others for Your glory. Thank You for creating us Lord. We praise You that while we are hard-pressed, we are not crushed to destruction because of Your mercy. We have hope and a future. We offer thanks to You in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, Your Son and our Savior. Amen.
