Prayer To Prepare For Communion

Lord as I come to partake of the bread and the wine, I come in meekness of heart and humility of spirit, knowing that I cannot approach You in my own righteousness, but because of Your great goodness and gracious mercy, in sending Your only begotten Son, to die on the cross in my place.. and to pay the price for my sin.

Thank You that You are a tender-hearted God and that Your nature is always to show mercy to those who are justly deserving of Your wrath and punishment.

As I partake of the symbols of bread and wine, I eat and drink in remembrance of Him.. Who died for me and rose again, knowing that He has become to me.. both my meat and my drink. Help me to live in newness of life and to walk worthy before You all the days of my life – this I ask in Jesus name,
