A Child’s Prayer Before Trick-or-Treating

A Child’s Prayer Before Trick-or-Treating

God, bless all the people we will meet.
Let our visit with them be a pleasant treat.
Whatever the costumes we wear tonight,
may we all be clothed with Christ’s light.
Protect us from danger and the devil’s ways,
that tomorrow with the saints we may sing your praise.
