Our Work Ahead – as read by Raymond A. Foss

We thank you for this holy ground,
this place we are gathered in
We thank you for the vision
of the members who had the faith
to build this holy space,
a house for your people here
in this capital city
Lord, we thank you for your presence
among us here, for your Holy Spirit,
and for the grace you bestowed on us all
through the sacrifice of your son, our Savior
The work we are in the midst of is holy service
We are embarking on work
to fulfill our connectional pledge,
to shore up our brothers and sisters,
to enable more work to be done in your name
We will be striving, over the next weeks,
to prayerfully prepare a budget,
and vote on a stewardship and capital campaign
We seek to discern your divine will
for this congregation, this piece of your church
Lord, give all of us, your servants,
eyes to see and ears to hear
your guidance and you will
in these tasks and in all we do
as we leave this gathering
in your holy name we pray these things.

September 20, 2007 9:04, edited September 23, 2007 12:48
as prayed at the end of a special Church Council meeting,
Wesley United Methodist Church, Concord, NH
