Halloween Prayers

Prayers and Collects for All Hallows Eve

Halloween (All Hallows Eve) is the Eve of All Saints Day. Therefore All Saints' Day Prayers are the most appropriate prayers. However, while Halloween has many fun customs, it is also a time to challenge and mock evil. We have included these Halloween Prayers for good to conquer over evil. Check out David Morrison's article, Christians and Halloween: Should Christians Celebrate Halloween?, for a Catholic perspective on Halloween. These Halloween Prayers are Christian in outlook, specifically Catholic and Orthodox.

Prayer to Christ Against Evil

Halloween Cemetery by David BennettChrist Our Lord
You suffered and were tempted.
You are powerful
to come to the aid
of those who are assailed
by the devil,
For you are the support of Christian people.
O Lord, protect with Your Right Hand
those who trust in Your Name.
Deliver them from the Evil One,
and grant them everlasting joy. Amen
St. Gregory of Khandzta (759-861)

Prayer to Be Delivered From All Evil

Sanctify, O Lord,
our souls, minds, and bodies.
Touch our minds
and search out our consciences.
Cast out from us every evil thought,
Every impure idea,
every base desire and memory,
Every unseemly word,
all envy, pride and hypocrisy,
Every lie, every deceit,
every worldly temptation,
All greed, all vainglory,
all wickedness, all wrath,
All anger, all malice,
all blasphemy, and all sloth,
Every movement of flesh and spirit
That is alien to the will of your holiness.
And enable us to turn to You,
Master, Lord who loves humankind,
To call upon you
with boldness and without condemnation,
With a pure heart, a contrite soul,
a face unashamed,
and with lips that are sanctified
Liturgy of Saint James, adapted

A Prayer for Protection in Christ

Almighty Father,
Even though we walk
through the valley of
the shadow of death,
we fear no evil,
for Your Son
our Lord Jesus Christ,
has conquered
evil and death,
illuminating even the darkest valley.
Therefore, we beg you:
Protect us from the enemy,
Defend us from all evil,
and give us the grace,
to walk in the light of your Son,
who lives and reigns,
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen
David Bennett

Prayer to God For Our Defense

O merciful and mighty God,
Your Son Jesus Christ
was born of the Blessed Virgin Mary
to bring us salvation
and to establish Your kingdom on earth:
Grant that Michael and all Your angels
may defend Your people
against Satan and every evil foe,
and that at last
we may come to that heavenly country
where Your saints forever sing Your praise.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Book of Occasional Services, Episcopal Church

Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle;
be our defense against the wickedness
and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him,
we humbly pray.
And do thou,
O prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God
thrust into hell
Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl about the world
for the ruin of souls. Amen.

Traditional Scottish Prayer

From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!

Eve of All Saints Prayer

Father,
All-Powerful and Ever-Living God,
Today we rejoice
in the holy men and women
of every time and place
May their prayers
bring us your forgiveness and love
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
From the Liturgy of the Hours

Commemoration of Saint Michael the Archangel

O most glorious Prince,
Michael the Archangel,
be mindful of us,
here and everywhere:
pray always
unto the Son of God for us,
Alleluia, Alleluia.

In the sight of Angels
I will sing to Thee, O God.

I will worship
facing Thy holy temple
and confess Thy name.

O God,
who in a marvelous order
hast established the ministries of angels
and of men,
mercifully grant that
as Thy holy Angels
ever do Thee service in heaven,
so at all times
they may succor us
here upon earth.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
From the Office of the feast of St. Michael
