We thank You, Father, and bless You with our souls, refusing to forget all of Your benefits to us in forgiving our iniquities, healing our bodies, redeeming our lives from destruction, and satisfying our mouth with good things so that our youth is renewed like the eagle's. Thank You, Father, for making Your ways known to us, redeeming us from the hand of our enemies, according to Luke chapter 2, and for conforming us to the image of Jesus. Father, we don't take for granted all that Your Spirit has accomplished in us since the last time we received the Bread and Cup of the New Testament, but we thank You with all of our hearts for all You've done and all that You are doing in us in the Name of Jesus.
We look unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith, Who is the same yesterday, today, and forever and we eat this Bread in Remembrance of Him.
We participate in the divine nature according to Your exceedingly great and precious promises, and as we walk in the light as He is in the light we drink this Cup in Remembrance of Him.
We humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God and seek more grace and wisdom to help in our time of need. From these lips that have eaten of Your Body and drunk of Your Blood we let no corrupt word proceed, but only that which is good toward needful edification, that it may minister grace to those hearing. We let all bitterness and fury and anger and clamor and calumny be taken away from us with all malice and we forgive as God for Christ's sake has forgiven us. We are imitators of God, walking in love according as Christ also loves us, in Jesus' Name. Amen!
