Prayer: For all the saints who went before us, who have spoken to our hearts and touched us with your fire, we praise you, O God.
For all the saints who live beside us, whose weaknesses and strengths are woven with our own, we praise you, O God.
For all the saints who live beyond us, who challenge us to change the world with them, we praise you, O God. (a prayer by Janet Morley for Christian Aid 1989)
