Invitation to Holy Communion

The Prayer of Thanksgiving

Leader: Lift up your hearts.

All: We lift them up to the Lord.

Leader: Let us give thanks to the Lord, our God.

All: It is right for us to give thanks and praise.

With joy we praise you, gracious Father,
     for you have created heaven and earth . . . .

Therefore we join our voices
     with all the saints and angels and the whole creation
     to proclaim the glory of your name.

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.

The Words of Institution

Prayer of Consecration

[. . . concluding with the Lord’s Prayer spoken together]

Our Father, who art in heaven,
     hallowed be thy name;
     thy kingdom come,
     thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our debts,
     as we forgive our debtors;
and lead us not into temptation,
     but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom and the power and glory,
     forever. Amen.

The Communion


Eternal God, heavenly Father,
     you have graciously accepted us as living members
     of your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ,
     and you have fed us with spiritual food
     in the sacrament of his body and blood.
May Christ’s love live in our hearts each day
and his victorious life sustain  us in our weakness.
     Through Christ, our Lord, Amen.
