A Prayer for All Saints Day

A Prayer for All Saints Day

by Teresa Donati

Saints of God, living clouds of witness

to our faith, intercede for us as we remember you.

May the clouds of your devotion roll over us, to give us shade,

Rolling back, revealing light,

The light of God’s Son making day’s bright hours,

A brightness which yet is but a shadow of the God-light

that shines forever over you, living now within it.

Saints of God, you are many, all filled with special love, pray help for us.

We think of all the blessings you confirm, we beg you, do not cease,

Pray for us.

You have done it first, you have lived the Message, the Word,

You have gathered God’s great love and favor,

You have so much of God’s healing graces.

Pray for us as you live in the Glory that is Timeless Forever.

We send you love, we see you as the road to hope and joy,

You have seen, as Job declared, that our Redeemer liveth,

And now, this earth in such great turmoil, do you shake your heads, your spirit selves

looking with compassion upon this dreadful world? 

Help us find hope, ask God for us, for the mercy of the healing world.

We celebrate you, and trust your witness to Christ and a witness to our suffering.

Bring us to joy, to health, by your holy words uttered in the Splendor all about you.

Our thanks for all your prayers. What can we say, except to thank you, for you can hear 

the sorrows in our hearts, the sadness of a stricken world.  Amen.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.
