Prayer before Communion
Jesus Christ, Lord of Life & God All Mighty, thou art the true live bread who descended from heaven and thou blessed with life those who receive your Holy flesh and blood.
Bestow upon thy servant heavenly blessings to enable me to receive your holy flesh and blood with due respect and humbleness.
Alert my heart with grace and grant me your salvation so that I may taste the sweetness of your heavenly grace which is wholly hidden in this sacred secret.
Grant me faith free from doubt or questioning so as to commence to you with unfailing faith and believing that this is your holy flesh and blood Emmanuel our Lord. Prepare me to receive Holy communion without falling into judgment but to unite me spiritually with you for forgiveness of my sins and for my accepted presence at your fearful kingdom. Glory to You, the Father and the Holy Spirit now and until eternity, Amen.
