Jesus invite me to Your table.
And may my life proclaim Your death until You return.
Prayer of Communal Confession
Almighty God we praise You.
You hold all of creation in Your hands.
Without You we would fall apart.
Lord as You sustain us, help us.
Give us courage to live as You did.
Help us see the poor as ourselves,
grant us meek hearts and gentle spirits,
and let us love widely so those weeping invite us in.
Help us turn from ourselves,
to choose love over our safety and comfort,
share Your eyes with us,
to see Your love for all including ourselves,
and keep us from hurting others with our wants.
Forgive us Lord.
We have sinned against You
in thought, word and deed.
In what we have done
and in what we have left undone.
Silence for Examination
Holy Spirit meet us with Your grace and tenderness.
Assist us in examining ourselves.
Silence for Reflection
Words of Invitation
Our Lord invites us to His table.
To sit with Him,
with those who came before,
and who are yet to come.
To share the eternal meal,
that Jesus began on the night He was betrayed.
Words of Institution
While they were eating, Jesus took some bread. After blessing it, He broke it, and gave it to the disciples, and said,
"Take, eat. This is My body."
Then He took a cup, and when He had giving thanks, He gave it to them, saying,
"Drink from it, all of you. For this is my blood of the covenant, which is being poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins."
"I tell you, I will not drink again the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it with you, anew, in my Father's kingdom."
