Raymond A. Foss Poems

Praying is Believing by Raymond A. Foss
Seeing is believing,
so the telling goes, of one bit of truth
for some of the people, most of the time
at the very least.
Others share a different take, a different means
of telling the story, of life’s challenges, of faith
Believing is seeing,
to step out in faith, to do the work of a person of faith
is to believe in the unseen.
A further step on that road
could be summed up,
Praying is believing,
because it is a turning inward,
a turning over of the problems,
the joys, the questions of life
to the unseen deity. Not merely doing
what we perceive as holy;
but turning our lives over
to the unknown, the invisible
