A Prayer for All Saints'
Lord Jesus, you call us to work, pray, and give for the good of the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven: assist us with the grace of your Holy Spirit to live your goodness, justice, peace, and love in our lives, in our parish, in our neighborhoods, and in God’s world, so that heaven may become more real in this life. We ask this to God’s glory, and in the strength of your holy Name. Amen.
