A Prayer for All Saints Day

Dear Lord,

On this day, All Saints Day, we lift up those who have gone before.  In truth, we know that they weren’t all Saints.  We know that some were rough, some were gruff and all were in need of your grace and mercy.

Even the great men and women of the faith stand as giants because of your love and power.

And so, on this day, we thank you for those who were examples, those who led the way, those who taught us how to live lives that reflect your gentle, loving spirit.
