singing praying

Our God,

As we caroled tonight,
the sounds of Your story
rose into the night.
And we, who sang at one retirement community,
imagined those who went from our church to another home,
and the sounds rising there as well.

And our singing is prayer,
and our singing is prayer answered.
And the singing praying rises in the darkness,
and the darkness cannot comprehend it.

So we sing,
and pray
in the name of the One,
still singing—
in, through, and beyond us …
Amen.
