HOLY COMMUNION

SCRIPTURE

1 Co 11:23-34

For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you. That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread;

And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.

Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.

For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.

For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.

For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another.

And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that ye come not together unto condemnation. And the rest will I set in order when I come.

 

THE APOSTLE’S CREED

 

 I BELIEVE IN GOD, THE FATHER ALMIGHTY, CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH, AND IN JESUS CHRIST HIS ONLY SON, OUR LORD, WHO WAS CONCEIVED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, BORN OF THE VIRGIN MARY, SUFFERED UNDER PONTIUS PILATE, WAS CRUCIFIED DEAD AND BURIED; HE DESCENDED INTO HELL.

 THE THIRD DAY HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD AND ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN AND SITTETH ON THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD THE FATHER ALMIGHTY.  FROM THERE HE SHALL COME TO JUDGE THE QUICK AND THE DEAD.

             I BELIEVE IN THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE HOLY CHRISTIAN CHURCH, THE COMMUNION OF SAINTS, THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS, THE RESURRECTION OF THE BODY AND LIFE EVERLASTING. AMEN.    

 

COMMUNION PRAYER FOR THE BREAD

 OUR FATHER, WE COME TO THE TABLE OF THY PRESENCE IN THE SPIRIT OF SINCERE HUMILITY. AS WE EXAMINE OUR HEARTS, WE FEEL UNWORTHY OF THE SUPREME SACRIFICE MADE FOR OUR SALVATION.

 GIVE US TODAY, AS WE PARTAKE OF THIS BREAD, A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING AND A NEW RESOLVE. MAY THIS SYMBOL OF THE BROKEN BODY OF THY SON HAVE ENRICHED MEANING, AND MAY IT GIVE US COURAGE TOWARD GREATER SACRIFICES ON OUR PART, THAT THY KINGDOM MAY COME ON EARTH AMONG PEOPLE EVERYWHERE. IN HIS NAME WE PRAY. AMEN.

 
 COMMUNION PRAYER FOR THE CUP

OUR FATHER, WE READ IN THY WORD THAT WITHOUT THE SHEDDING OF THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST THERE CAN BE NO REMISSION OF SINS. AS WE TAKE OF THE CUP OF SUFFERING TODAY, MAY WE BE REMINDED OF CALVARY AND THE SUPREME SACRIFICE MADE BY OUR MASTER UPON THE CROSS. GIVE US UNDERSTANDING HEARTS AND MINDS. QUICKEN WITHIN US THE DESIRE TO PROVE OUR SINCERITY AS THOSE WHO WEAR THE NAME OF CHRIST AND WHO DESIRE TO SERVE HIM CONSISTENTLY.

 WE WOULD THEREFORE TOGETHER IN THIS HIGH MOMENT OF WORSHIP RENEW OUR VOWS OF LOYALTY TO THY KINGDOM. FORGIVE US IN OUR WEAKNESSES. STRENGTHEN US IN OUR NOBLE PURPOSES. THIS WE PRAY IN THE NAME OF CHRIST,  OUR  SINLESS MASTER . AMEN
