A Prayer For Communion
Father God, we give you praise that your Son, Jesus Christ, was obedient to death, even death on the cross; and we confess that, therefore, He is highly exalted and is given a name that is above every name; that at the name of Jesus, every knee should bow and every tongue confess, ‘He is Lord,’ to the glory of God the Father.
Father, meet us at this table. Would you please send your Spirit to strengthen the weak, to give faith to the doubting, to give forgiveness to the bitter, to give purity to the lustful, to give charity to the greedy? Father, give us whatever we need, that through this Body and Blood–broken and shed for us–we might go forth from this place cleansed through your grace.
O Lamb of God, that takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
