Eyes by Raymond A. Foss

With eyes, eyes open to your presence
to your hand, working even now, in the world
in the unfolding pages of the story of history
the story of your people, the children of Abraham,
the brothers, the sisters of your son

Give me courage, almighty God,
seeing you, your plan, your place for me
to take up my cross, to put on the yoke of Christ
to walk with my savior, to journey, to toil in your fields
in your vineyards, to tend, to feed, to nurture
to care for your sheep, as I am called

Help me Lord, to have eyes for you, for your ways
clinging to your light, your way through the darkness
show me your paths, your choices, your will
for my life, my world, my calling
the strength, the resolve, the faith
to worship you, to do your will

Unison Prayer, written by Pastor Ruth L. Foss,
“Creator, Sustainer, Almighty God, you who are the giver
of all wisdom. Enable us to set aside the world to worship
you in your temple. We pray that you would give us eyes to
see your presences in all things around us, ears to hear
your still small voice, and a heart that is pliable to your
molding so that we may worship you in Spirit and in truth.
It is is the name of the babe in the manger so long ago, our
Lord Jesus Christ, that we pray. Amen.”
Psalm 148
Isaiah 61:10-62:3
Galatians 4:4-7
Luke 2:22-40
John 1:1-14
and sermon, “What a Great Plan!”,
by Pastor Ruth L. Foss, December 28, 2008,
