Creator God, We are all the work of Your hand. You are our Potter and we are the clay. You desire for us to be shaped into the best possible version of ourselves. Through life’s difficulties, You are slowly molding us with precision. Help us to patiently face afflictions and persistently endure ordeals, knowing that in these sufferings You are working to create Your masterpiece. Teach us to be calm and patient in the face of adversity, and like the clay, willingly and trustingly submit to the Potter’s Hand. Amen.
