A Prayer at Communion

Dear Lord and Savior, we come to your table in faith, for you have told us, "As often as you do this, do it in memory of Me." Help us to celebrate this remembrance of death and resurrection in the very best way we know how. Do then, we pray Thee, overshadow us with Thy very breathing Presence. Breathe on us, 0 Breath of God; quicken and heal and purify and cleanse. Strengthen and perfect that which is wanting in us. Bless the strangers and the friends who happen to be within our gates today. Dear Lord, make them sense that they have found a home among us as we worship, and to realize that they are just as much "owners" here as we are; for it is the Lord's house and the Lord's table — it is not ours. We are all guests and children in the household — all of us! And we pray that we may love Thee acceptably, for we would not wound Thee again! Thou didst love us with such poured-out love that not even the blood in Thy veins was dear enough to Thee — we were dearer than that blood! All of this we ask in Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Verse

Ye do shew the Lord's death till he come. 1 Corinthians 11:26

Thought

We are all guests and children in the household—all of us! And we pray that we may love Thee acceptably, for we would not wound Thee again!

Prayer

Lord, remind me daily of the special significance our remeberence of You holds, and may I never look with anything but amazed reverence at the memory of Your death, burial, and resurrection.
