Quietly, at Your Feet by Raymond A. Foss

Lord, in the stillness of your house,
in the troubled places in our hearts
let us sit quietly, at your feet,
centering our hearts, focusing,
on your message for us this day
Let us remember the essential thing,
that you are the way, the light,
the word of God made flesh,
that your example, your life
a model for our own
Help us this day to listen,
to hear, to act, to serve
as you so humbly gave
even your life, in fulfillment
in sacrifice, in atonement
for sins you did not commit
Let us walk with you, carrying our cross,
bearing your yoke, with you
every step of the way
May this day be one
governed by the words
you speak to us
as we sit quietly, at your feet

January 20, 2009
based on the unison prayer,
written by Pastor Ruth L. Foss,
Suncook United Methodist Church
for the service, 1/25/09
and see Luke 10:38-42,
for the story of Mary and Martha
