A Collect to Be Shaped by the Father’s Hands

Father of all peoples, who has created us for your good pleasure, grant us humility and a willingness to be shaped by your hand, that we would be instruments for your mission in the world, trusting that as you do good with us, we will receive much more than we could ask or imagine, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in great joy forever and ever. Amen. ‘Yet, O LORD, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand.’ – Isa. 64:8
