For all things, good, joyful and pure, we pray as we enter a season of celebrations.

Halloween's roots lie in an ancient pagan festival for the dead. While this autumn feast can be used for evil purposes, our culture celebrates it as an innocent night of begging and fun. We who believe in the light of the world can use it to celebrate the Light. 'Hallow' means holy and the word Halloween refers to the night before the feast of all holies, or All Saints Day. Emphasize all things good, joyful and pure. Let your children know that they are 'children of the light' called to walk in the light.

Renew my strength, Lord, throughout the day.

I refuse to drag across the threshold weary, worn out and beaten down by the day's activities.

Germaine Copeland

Ephesians 6:11-13

Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil. For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens. Therefore, put on the armor of God, that you may be able to resist on the evil day and, having done everything, to hold your ground.
