Clay Prayer: Being a Disciple
For as the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand, O House of Israel
Jeremiah 18: 6
Lord God, who creates all things for a reason,
shape us like clay to your purpose, tell us
our true names.
Fire us with the Holy Spirit, in darkness
and in light.
Guide us to the people and places
that can work your will in us.
For we are ready, Lord,
to be made your servants and your disciples
in Christ's name.
Prayer from Jane Holland, Warwickshire
Don't forget, the weekly meetings at Elizabeth House, Flecknoe, are continuing at 7.30pm on Thursday evenings, where you can follow a US-devised course entitled 'Being a Disciple: Counting the Real Cost.' These weekly meetings are being led by one of our new church members, Ann Absolom, who first suggested the idea and is now organising the course.
