Remembering the Saint’s

This Sunday at Church we will be remembering the saints (believers) who passed away in the past year. I found this prayer I would like to share with you…

A Prayer for the Saints Who Are No Longer with Us

God, when I hear the word “saint” I often associate it with those who no longer walk this earth, who are dwelling in eternal rest. I can think of many people in my own life who had an impact with me, who I cannot wait to see them again. Lord, I dearly miss my friends and family who are not here on earth anymore. But I also rejoice that they will no longer experience pain or shed any tears of sadness. God, although I’m sad I am temporarily away from them, I want to thank you so much for bringing them into my life. They have shaped me to be more like you, and I will forever remember their example. Amen.

Have a Blessed Week,
Chris

    Very well said. This thought process is in line with Orthodox Christian tradition regarding saints. The Orthodox believe that all Christians become saints as they’ve lived their life following Christ and His teachings. Yes, there are Saints, Martyrs and Holy people that are taught to us as an example of their dedication to the Lord. In Greek they are referred to as Ayia or Ayio which means holy.
