All Saints' Sunday, Year A

 

Episcopal Revised Common Lectionary

 

Presider:  Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever!  We bring into your eternal presence our prayers and intercessions, as we say:  Taste and see that God is good; happy are they who trust in the Most High!

 

 

Litanist:  You have blessed and called your church to be your own children, O Holy One, and to live in the spirit of Christ:  Bless and sustain us until we join with those who have led the way into your eternal presence.  Taste and see that God is good;

happy are they who trust in the Most High!

 

You bring into your glory a multitude from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, Almighty One:  Let those who exercise authority in the world live in the light of your eternal wisdom.  Taste and see that God is good;

happy are they who trust in the Most High!

 

Your eternal glory fills earth and heaven, Eternal God:  Look throughout the earth to bless the poor in spirit and those who mourn; the meek and those who hunger and thirst for righteousness; the merciful, the pure in heart, and the peacemakers; and those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake.  Taste and see that God is good;

happy are they who trust in the Most High!

 

You bless our community with gracious affection, O Loving One:  Let all who live among us live as Jesus has taught us to live.  Taste and see that God is good;

happy are they who trust in the Most High!

Let us exalt God’s Name together, as we offer our grateful thankgivings, especially for ___.

Salvation belongs to our God and to the Lamb:  We remember those who have died and entrust them into your eternal glory, especially ___.  Clothe them in their white robes of triumph that they may praise you before your heavenly throne.  Taste and see that God is good;

happy are they who trust in the Most High!

 

Presider:  Let your eternal glory shine in heaven and earth to cast away all darkness by the light of your presence, O God:  As we join the heavenly hosts to worship you in our prayers, let the Lamb be our shepherd to guide all people to the springs of the water of life; and let your Spirit wipe away every tear from every eye, through Jesus Christ the Blessed One, who lives and reigns with you, and the Holy Spirit, One God, now and for ever.  Amen.
