Your Presence

Eyes to see your presence
your presence in all things, your grace
in all things, everywhere, all around us
your love, in all of creation, in our neighbor’s face
in the slumber of children, your presence in us
if we would let your light shine
to feel you, your will, in the whisper of our cells
our very being, calling out your message
for us to be you in this world
to serve our fellow man, to be stewards
of this beautiful earth given for us
to live simply, to look for, see your presence
with eyes that would see you
walking with us, assuring us
all around us, wherever we go

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
