With One Voice by Raymond A. Foss

With heads raised, not bowed in prayer
speaking with one voice, raising a single prayer,
calling you into our midst, acknowledging your presence
your spirit filling this place, ready, eager
to feed us, to teach us, reproof and guide us
with a message for us, collectively, individually
knowing, each of us, listening, hoping to still ourselves
to share in the message you have for you, for me,
for our congregation, sharing one voice, one prayer
offering up our cares, our joins, our centering this morning,
each time we gather, in the beginning of worship,
turning from our days, to your presence,
here in your sanctuary, your church,
raising a common prayer
to your praise and glory

January 24, 2009
Based on the Unison Prayer,
“Almighty Creator and Sustainer God, we have come into
your house to worship you this morning. Help us to lay our
cares and woes on your altar as we quietly sit at your feet
and listen to your word. May we hear the message you have
for us. Strengthen us so that we may be your light, your
ambassadors to the world. And it is in Christ Jesus’ name
we pray. Amen.”
by Pastor Ruth L. Foss,
Suncook United Methodist Church,
Suncook, NH
for January 25, 2009,
“Third Sunday after the Epiphany”
