The Prayer of Confession
Minister and People:
Eternal God, Judge of all humankind, we confess our need of You. Our sins are too heavy to carry, too real to hide, and too deep to undo. We confess not only our many sins, but also our anxieties about the present predicament. We look at a world undone by strife, torn by violence, separated by hatred. We see health crisis on a scale so large as to be called a pandemic. Have mercy upon us! Forgive us, O Lord, Give us grace to remember that “perfect love casts out fear”, Grant us clarity of vision to see the light, And the strength to walk in the power of your Holy Spirit.
The Prayer of Consecration
Today, with praise on our tongue and joy in our heart; let not our devotion die. We hold these ancient symbols of bread and wine, reminding us of the meal You shared with Your disciples — a meal through which they (and we) should Remember You. It was the night when You were betrayed by a disciple. You took a loaf of bread, and when you had given thanks, broke it and said, ‘This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way, you took the cup also, after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.’ You took bread and wine and blessed them and made of them a Sacrament. We once again consecrate these tokens, not as Relics, but as Reminders of Your sacrifice of body and blood, broken and shed because of Your great Love at Calvary. Now, in a different space, made sacred by our present purpose, we partake of the bread and we sip from the cup. We feast on these emblems by faith, grateful that You are forever present with us. Amen.
People: God our hope, we give you thanks. Lead us in lives of purpose and joy as we await Your coming again in Glory. Hallelujah! Amen!
Together, let us eat! Together, let us drink — with thanksgiving! Amen!
