At the pastors' prayer breakfast

Good company this morning at the Wheaton College Pastors' Prayer Breakfast. I knew the liturgy from past experience. 

I made my way
Through the breakfast line
Found a table
With the glorious
Acappella trio:
They opened and closed the prayer
In voices which blended
Beyond any needed words.
In their first hymn
I decided to treat the gathering
As a silent meeting.
Others would offer long lists
Of prayers
Telling God
Who He was,
What He might do.
I was moved to speak
At the end.
Sometimes I wonder if God
Can hear our hearts
Over all the ways
We fill the air.
