A communion prayer

Over the past few months I’ve been studying and thinking about the role and place of the Lord’s Supper in church life, and although I haven’t finished with that I thought I would post some prayers, scriptures and service elements, all borrowed from Gathering for Worship: Patterns and Prayers for the Community of Disciples

Go with us Lord,
so that we can love in all sincerity,
loathing what is evil and clinging to what is good.
We will be devoted to one another as brothers and sisters,
honouring each other above ourselves;
we will be joyful in hope,
patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
We will share with God’s people who are in need
and practise hospitality.
With your help we will bless those who persecute us,
blessing and not cursing.
We will not repay evil for evil.
We will not be overcome by evil,
but by the power of your Spirit
we will overcome evil with good.
Go with us good Lord
and live in us the life of the Kingdom.
