Day 17

A Prayer Of Eucharist

“And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.’”

Luke 22:19

Lamb of God,

You gave Yourself fully and freely to us in obedience to God to open heaven’s gates and provide a way back to our Father’s embrace. Your body was broken so that we might be made whole, and Your blood was shed so that we might be washed of our sins, forgiven and free to love and serve You. We thank You for the sacrament of Holy Communion where we remember Your sacrifice for us, and we partake of our family meal and are nourished with spiritual food and drink. In the Greek, eucharistia is thanksgiving. May our lives reflect the gratitude in our hearts for all You have done and provided for us through Your sacrificial redeeming love. Holy Spirit, help our lives to be a living eucharist to the glory of God our King. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen.
