Prayer at Holy Communion time


Lord Jesus Christ, you promised to be with your Church always, until the end of time.

We long to experience your presence more deeply and more intimately, even when we cannot gather in person as church to celebrate Eucharist.

We believe that you are present when we gather in worship.

We believe you are present in your sacred word when the Scriptures are proclaimed.

And we believe you are present when your sacred Body and Blood

become our food and drink.

Our relationship with you is truly grace.

When I am not able to be physically present at the Eucharist with the community,

help me to strengthen and deepen my relationship with you as I seek to encounter and serve you,

not only in prayer but in all I meet, especially in the poor and needy of our world.
