Raymond A. Foss Poems >>
A Time of Reverent Prayer

In the silence, a hope
a centering
that the time set apart
will be holy
a time of reverent prayer
sensing our Father
here right beside us
lifting us up
with us in struggles
speaking directly to us

"Michelle and I join with millions of Christians
here and across the world to mark Ash Wednesday.
As we observe the season of Lent, we receive
with thanksgiving this opportunity for grace and repentance,
recommit ourselves to our faith, and
remember our obligations to one another."
