A Prayer for Today – Irenaeus

prayer&candleIt is not you that shapes God
it is God that shapes you.

If you are the work of God
await the hand of the artist
who does all things in due season.

Offer Him 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 his fingers.

— Irenaeus (c. 130-200)
