Benediction for All Saints

Here’s a commission and benediction based on Hebrews 12: 1, written by Bruce Prewer.

Word of Mission & Blessing
(based on Hebrews 12: 1)

Go on your way rejoicing;
Surrounded as you are by such a great cloud of witnesses,
take courage as you face each new challenge,
and comfort when you pick yourself from a fall,
In whatever good you choose to do,
precede it with hope,
accompany it with prayer,
and follow it with thanksgiving.

The blessing of God Most Wonderful,
whom the saints have trusted as
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
will be with you
now and ever more.

Amen!
