All Saints Day Prayer: John 11

Here’s a prayer for All Saints Day based on John 11:32-44, the suggested gospel reading for Year B. It comes from the PCUSA website.

All Saints Day Prayer
(inspired by John 11:32-44)

Eternal God, hope of all who trust in you,
in Christ you weep with those who mourn
even as you cry out in triumph over the grave.
Unbind us from sin, release us from captivity,
and with Lazarus, raise us from death to life,
so that we may join that great crowd of saints
who forever sing praise to your holy name;
through Christ, the resurrection and the life.
