All Saints Day

1 Nov

Andrew Jones, aka Tall Skinny Kiwi, has announced that he will be blogging through the Christian calendar, beginning today.  Also, if you are interested, here is a song Jonathan wrote with our friend Jonathan Green, for All Saints Day.

I found this prayer for today on the Church of England website.

Surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses,
let us make our prayer in the power of the Spirit,
looking to Jesus the pioneer of our faith.

That with the noble fellowship of the prophets
we may discern the signs of your kingdom in our midst,
we pray to you, O Lord: 

That with the glorious company of the apostles
we may proclaim your gospel throughout the world,
we pray to you, O Lord: 

That with the white-robed army of martyrs
we may be ready to suffer for the truth’s sake,
we pray to you, O Lord: 

That with all who are anointed by your Spirit
we may bring good news to the poor and freedom to the oppressed,
we pray to you, O Lord: 

That with the saints in light
we may bind up the brokenhearted and comfort all who mourn,
we pray to you, O Lord:

That within the whole company of Christ’s pilgrim people
we may come to the inheritance of the saints in glory,
we pray to you, O Lord: 

In communion with all the saints,
let us commend the world to the mercy and protection of God.

    I think I’ve just caught up with my google reader since being away. The last post I read of yours was your halloween thoughts, which has left me pondering.

    CofE site is always good when in need of a “formal” prayer!
