Taken from Halloween#Christianity:

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. —All Hallow's Eve Prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours

It seems like an opening prayer for the Solemnity of All Saints: [1], [2], [3]. Not sure if it could also be used on All Hallow's Eve. Rgds, Ign christian (talk) 12:37, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

Hello User:Ign christian! I have a copy of both the Roman Catholic four volume set of the Liturgy of the Hours, as well as the Anglican Breviary. In the Anglican Breviary, on page 1514 (E494), for the "Vigil of All Saints", there is a Collect that reads: "O LORD our God, increase, we pray thee, and multiply upon us the gifts of thy grace: that we, who do prevent the glorious festival of all thy Saints, may of thee be enabled joyfully to follow them in all virtuous and godly living. Through." Since this is specifically for All Hallows' Eve, it might be better to supplant the current prayer in the article with this one. However, I have no problem with the current prayer, as I found it in a compilation by the Catholic author David Bennett, who lists the prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours as an "Eve of All Saints Prayer" here. I hope this helps. With regards, AnupamTalk 17:12, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
Hello Anupam, glad to see you again. :) Ehm..I tend to agree with your first idea, since it came from official sources. In my opinion, the current prayer has no good enough source (as you pointed out here). However I'll support what you think best. Thanks, Ign christian (talk) 09:01, 11 November 2015 (UTC)
