“Almighty God, in whom is no darkness at all, Grant me your light perpetually…”
Prayers for Halloween
The Bible tells us to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). Sometimes that means finding prayers for all situations. However you celebrate “All Hallows Eve,” here are three prayers to use at church or home.
A Classic for All Hallows Eve
From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!
– Traditional Scottish poem
Prayer Appropriate before Trick-or-Treating
Almighty God, in whom is no darkness at all:
Grant me your light perpetually,
and when I cannot see the way before me,
may I continue to put my trust in you;
that so, being guided and guarded by your love,
I may be kept from falling,
this day and all my days,
through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.
– By William Knight, Printed in Prayers for all Occasions, Forward Movement
For Thanksgiving and Safety
All praise to Thee, my God, this night,
For all the blessings of the light.
Keep me, O keep me, King of kings,
Beneath Thine own almighty wings.
– From the Hymn by Thomas Ken
