“This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me…This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you” (Luke 22:19, 20)
Lord Jesus Christ, we thank you for giving us the blessed Sacrament of Holy Communion that with the bread, you give us your true body that bore our sin on the cross and that with the wine, you give us your true blood that washed away our guilt. Grant that we partake of this sacrament to our benefit by recognizing the gifts we are receiving, by grieving over our sin, and believing your promise of forgiveness. We pray in your name. Amen
