Almighty God, Father of our Lord, Spirit of Truth:
Why have you formed me, all-knowing potter, the way that you have? (Jer 18:2-7)
In your creative urge, did you have a special use in mind?
Did you mean me for everyday use, something to hold the baked beans
or maybe a casserole or a tuna salad?
Are my colors plain to all who see me even as I am wholely blind?
Did you mean me for a special holiday, stored away in a special place until the season,
only to be displayed on a particular day, highlighted and remembered and cherished?
Am I brightly colored, festive, memorable even if only for a day?
Thank you, Lord, for veiling your purposes from me.
That I may serve you as you see fit, each and every day.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Prayer for the Potter
