Oh Lord, on a day devoted to glorifying evil, we glorify you. On a day that draws attention to evil deeds, we turn our thoughts to your wondrous deeds. On a day that plays on our fears, we remember the one who says, “Fear not, for I am with you.” On a day that celebrates death, we honor the one who conquered death, and we celebrate the life we have in you. On a day that entertains spirits, we ask that you fill us with your Holy Spirit. And through your Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, deliver us from evil today and every day. Amen.
