Prayer of the Day

It is not you that shapes God,
it is God who shapes you.
If then you are the work of God,
await the hand of the artist who
does all things in due season.
Offer God your heart, soft and tractable,
and keep the form in which the artist
has fashioned you.  Let your clay be moist,
lest you grow hard and lose the imprint of God’s finger.

 

St Irenaeus
