Be a Light on Halloween Night!

It’s the time of year our prayers and the light of Christ can make a very special difference in our communities. Though Keith and I do not celebrate Halloween, we are intentional on October 31st. We pray, our porch light goes on, and we give away goodies AND a fun bookmark—on one side there is an interesting animal fact, and on the back it says “Our family prayed for your family”, along with a Scripture. To get your FREE printable bookmarks (created by my daughter-in-law, Audrey Gillies) PLEASE CLICK HERE

This year Audrey has updated the bookmarks with a fresh verse and brighter colors that use less ink. She’s also offering a nice little sign to print out and display near your door that reads “Thanks for stopping by! Please let us know if we can pray for you!” Obviously that’s optional, but imagine the conversations that will happen (and hopefully the prayers).

It’s my fervent hope that you will join us as we share the light of Jesus on Halloween—more people ring our doorbell that night than any other day of the year, so let’s Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days” (Ephesians 5:16). It is also our sincere desire that every child and family member who shows up at our door to trick-or-treat will sense God’s peace and that their hearts will be touched by the verse and the fact that we prayed for them. Just think how many little lives we can touch and bless through our prayers and these sweet little bookmarks. 

PRAYER FOR HALLOWEEN NIGHT

Lord, I pray Your blessing over every child and person who comes to my door today. Lord, may they sense Your peace. Please stir their hearts and soften their hearts. Bring godly friends into their lives and put books and materials into their hands that will lead them to You. May each child (and person) who comes to my door tonight come to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. 

May they walk in light, embrace Your truth, and experience Your love for themselves. May they know their future is in Your hands (Psalm 31:15), and always take delight in You, Lord (Psalm 37:4). May they understand what is just, right, and fair, and find the right way to go (Proverbs 2:9). May wisdom enter their hearts and knowledge fill them with joy (Proverbs 2:10). May wise choices watch over them and understanding keep them safe (Proverbs 2:11).  Lord, show them Your unfailing love in wonderful ways (Psalm 17:7a) all the days of their lives.

It is in the precious name of Jesus that I ask these things, knowing You are good and You are able, Amen.
