Sunday Prayer

Ursula LeGuin says, “Love doesn’t just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; re-made all the time, made new.

Today, on World Communion Sunday, we gather at the table with all the saints of every time and every place, to respond to the One who asks only this: Remember me. Let us pray,

Blessed One, Holy Source of Life, we give thanks for the Bread of Life, the true bread of the Spirit that sustains us through all of life's trials and triumphs. We thank you for harvests that were blessed with abundant growth and ask your mercy and provide for those whose harvests were insufficient for their needs.

Help us to slow down, O God, so that the seeds of our faith may take in the nourishment you offer and grow into the fullness of the grace you provide. Bless us on this special day and hover in our midst as we join hands with all your children in this place and around the world - to remember you, to break the bread, to share the cup, to give thanks.

May your Spirit be with us, this day and every day. Amen.

Lord I pray for unity in the Eucharist - that we would be one - because though we are many we all share in the one loaf. Amen
