“Grant that we may be so fashioned by your grace as to become a dwelling pleasing to you.”

This Collect is reminiscent of Jeremiah’s call to go down to the Potter’s house to see how the clay was shaped by the Potter’s hands. (Jeremiah 18)

Lord God, Master Potter, it is you who lift up life from the clay and fashion it into living, breathing, human beings. “Amazing grace, how sweet thou art.”
