Prayer for Nov. 1

Prayer for Nov. 1: Please pray with me.  God of the saints, today we remember your saints – those who have gone before us in faith.  We hear your word: “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob.”  You are the God of the living, not the dead.  Those who have died are not forgotten, but live in you.  You hold them and us in the palm of your hands.  So many live on the belief that history started when they were born and will end when they die.  Yet, you tell us over and over again, that creation is so much bigger than us individually.  Yet, we are not lost in creation either.  You remember us.  You remember your children.  You remember your promises.  You remember – we are not lost or forgotten.  Thanks be to God!  Amen.
