Praying with Paul: 'Observing the Lord's Supper'

Friday, April 19, 2024

1 Corinthians 11:17-23

Dear Father, giver of bread and wine,

When we come together as your family to partake of bread and wine, let it truly be "the Lord's supper" which we eat. Let there be no divisions or preferences among us, no putting ourselves first, or putting our group first. Let there be no divisions between rich and poor, young and old, dark-skinned or light, white collar or blue collar. Let no one do anything that would humiliate another. For "the Lord's supper" is a feast of love and unity.

Cause us to remember what was delivered to us by your apostles, how the Lord Jesus on the night that he was betrayed took bread, and having given thanks, broke it, and said, "This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me."

In the name of Jesus, who is the daily bread and wine of our lives, I ask. Amen.
