A prayer from the Northumbrian community for All Hallows Eve:
Great God of bounty and provider in lean times, protector from evil and hope of new light and life, we thank you for all those who before us have trusted Jesus and walked a holy way. We praise you that with them we are part of the fellowship of all saints, past and present. Teach us to follow their examples of faithfulness and service, and to trust You through all the dark, cold days to bring us through to light and new life. In the name of the One who transforms all life, Jesus the Christ. Amen.
