Answering Our Unspoken Prayer by Raymond A. Foss

So many times I have witnesses
God’s amazing sense of timing
answering our unspoken prayers
even before they are uttered

Setting something in motion
bringing someone into our lives
changing the course of our history
in moments of grace and delight

How much that is a mirror
held before unbelieving eyes
reminding us of his presence
his loving providence

God there with us,
knowing us before we were born
giving us gifts both great and small
wonders to behold

Caring for us, even when we turn away
when we deny he even exists
right besides us, all of our lives
there when we turn to him

Gifts to amaze us,
surprise us completely
stopping in our tracks
falling to our knees

Thanks to your our father,
son, holy spirit
all of the ways you grace us
fill us with your love
