Prayers of the People on All Saints’ Sunday 11/6/2022

The Reverend Christine V. Hides

It is truly right and our greatest joy to give thanks and praise to you, Almighty God, the Alpha and Omega, Creator of the universe. We praise you with your people on earth and all the company of heaven, the ancestors and saints who have followed your Son and witnessed to his resurrection. From every race and tongue, and from every people and nation, you have gathered them into your kingdom. You have shown them the path of life and filled them with the joy of your presence.

We pray, waiting and watching, for your new creation, when every tear will be wiped away. We bring to you our joys and concerns and our petitions for loved ones. We trust that you comfort those who mourn, soothe the suffering, guide the hands of healers and caregivers, and are present with us in any need.

On this sacred Sunday, unite us at the Lord’s table with those beloved of our fellowship who have passed into your eternal care. We remember their witness:

Blessed are the dead who die in the spirit, for they rest from their labors, and their works follow them.

For all that these saints and
the saints whose names we hold in our hearts
have given us to make us what we are,
for their love that lives and grows in each of us,
And for their witness and fellowship that strengthen us,
we give you thanks and praise.
Dwell within and among us, Holy God.
Number us among your saints,
draw those of us in this life closer to one another
and give us courage and faith to serve you with joy,
that we might be bearers of your peace and justice in this life.

Joining our voices with the vast community of faith, we pray the prayer Jesus teaches us to pray: Our Father…. Amen.
