A “Pre “All Hallow’s Eve” Hump Day Prayer

Good and Gracious God,

 

Your goodness and graciousness has come to us through lives of “saints” in everyday life.

 

For them we are grateful because they have served as models of faithfulness, compassion, mercy, hope, and love.

 

We have seen and experienced their faithfulness in their everyday living and working as they have honored You with faithful work in the workplace.

 

We have seen  and experienced their compassion in moments of pain and despair with quiet actions and helpful words.

 

We have seen and experienced their mercy when we it would have been easy to judge, say ‘NO!” and walk away.

 

We have seen and experienced their hope during difficult moments – when bills are overdue, when work is uncertain, when health is unsteady.

 

We have seen and experienced their love in moments of ‘I do’ and ‘It’s a girl!’ to the moments of ‘we commit the body of our …”

 

For it has been Your faithfulness, compassion, mercy, hope, and love we have experienced through them

 

They are our “Saints” our guides our mentors of faith

 

And for them

 

We are grateful and thankful to You.

 

Amen
