A Blessed All Hallows Eve


Here is a responsive prayer to remind us of the true meaning of the evening

With saints of all ages we come to God this day

With those who were, who are, and who will come

With saints of all ages

We believe and trust in God the creator

The one who is, who always was, and who is still to come;

The one who calls us to be salt in a world that has lost its flavour

With saints of all ages

We believe and trust in Christ our Saviour

The first to rise from the dead, and the ruler of all the nations of the world.

The one who calls us to be light in a world that is mired by darkness

With saints of all ages

We believe and trust in the life giving Spirit

The seal of our inheritance the guarantee of what is to come

Who calls us to glorify God through our words and actions

With saints of all ages

We believe and trust in God’s kingdom coming

A new world breaking onto ours, eternal world of wholeness and joy

Where the poor will be fed and the prisoners set free

With saints of all ages

We believe and trust in God’s kingdom coming

Where justice and righteousness will have no end

Where the sick will be healed, the blind see and the deaf hear

With saints of all ages

We believe and trust in God

  1. awesome prayer, thank you. I was looking for something to end our reflection on this sunday when we will be celebrating all saints day in church and this is just perfect! 🙂

  2. Paul,
    You are welcome. Next year I hope to put together some liturgical resources in a booklet. At the moment I am working on a CD of Advent resources. Appreciate prayers that it will be available in the next couple of weeks.
