Praying with Paul: 'Examining Myself'

Friday, April 22, 2022

1 Corinthians 11:27-32

Dear Father, giver of bread and wine,

May I never eat the bread or drink the cup in an unworthy manner, lest I profane the body and blood of the Lord. Teach me to examine my heart and mind thoroughly before I eat of the bread and drink of the cup.

Keep me from eating or drinking judgment upon myself by failing to discern the body of the Lord, and thus become weak and ill, or fall asleep.

May I judge myself truly, so that I will not be condemned.

Most of all, help me submit to your judgment, Lord, by which you chasten us so that we will not be condemned along with the world.

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