A Prayer for All Saints Day

Lord, 

We thank you for the Saints now gone before us

whose faith defined their living and their dying;

those who loved you more than their own lives;

those who are still mirrors of your love.

We celebrate the saints who walk among us rejoicing

while they walk in your footsteps,

making your name known in a fractured world,

against injustice, prejudice, hatred, evil.

We stand with those who sacrifice themselves

to bring about your kingdom here on earth.

Lord, your grace shines in the lives of Saints.

We thank you for their example,

their holy words.

Your Spirit inspired them.

Come Holy Spirit inspire us to be saints in your Church now.

Amen
