Welcome to our growing library of communion prayers. If you know of a good prayer to say at communion, we invite you to add it at the bottom of the page.
The Bread and The Cup
Often times, communion prayers for the Eucharist will be broken up into two sections; “For the Bread”, and “For the Cup”. One prayer is to be said before the breaking of the bread, and one before the pouring of the wine.
|For the Bread:|
Crucified God, we wear beautiful crosses around
our necks, and hang them on our walls. We have
made your “triumphant sign” of suffering decorative,
when what it really needs to be is defining.
So make us cruciform Lord, in our weekly
remembrance of Christ’s death on the cross
in our breaking of this bread.
Let us show by the offering of our hearts and hands
the depth of our commitment to live for him who died for us.
In lives of sacrifice and service, empower our
witness to Jesus Christ, whose cross so powerfully
proclaims your love.
For the Cup:
In lifting this cup of remembrance here this morning
Oh God of sacrifice, we are lifting high the cross of Christ
and proclaiming your great love.
We partake, with gratitude, all the gifts that ours
in Christ crucified - new life, real unity, eternal life,
and a meaningful purpose.
Fill us now again with the power of your spirit
that we might be bold in our witness to Jesus Christ,“till all the world adores his sacred name”.
|A First Communion Prayer|
I believe that You are present in the
Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
I believe it because you have said it
and I’m ready to give my life to
maintain this truth.
Catholic Communion Prayers
Here are some prayers for the Blessed Sacrament from the Catholic tradition.
The Sanctity of Life
My God, we adore You here in the Blessed Sacrament.
As we kneel before You, we recognize You
as the Creator of all Life. We thank You and
praise You for the lives you have given to us
and to those we love. Give us a true and lasting
respect for all life, for we recognize it as coming
from You. We pray for all who have suffered or
died as a result of disrespect whether that suffering
and death has come as a result of abuse, war, gossip,
We pray for an end for all disrespect of life. As we
kneel before You we ask You to forgive all those who
do not respect the sanctity of life. We repeat the words
you spoke as you hung on the cross, 'Father, forgive them,
for they know not what they do.
|Hail to Thee, True Body|
Hail to thee, true body born
From Virgin Mary's womb!
The same that on the cross was nailed
And bore for man the bitter doom.
Thou, whose side was pierced and flowed
Both with water and with blood;
Suffer us to taste of thee,
In our life's last agony.
O kind, O loving one!
O sweet Jesus, Mary's Son!
Prayer After Communion
Here are some simple, short prayer to say after the communion has ended.
Go as risk takers,
For God has nourished you with bread and cup.
Go as new creatures,
For God is saving you from your sin.
Go as children of God,
For God will be with us all.
Gracious God, here at this table we have been,br>in the company of Jesus Christ, our savior and redeemer.
You have revealed your loving ways to us in broken bread
and poured cup. Now, as your light has illuminated
our lives. Help us be a light for others.
Eternal Light, shine in our hearts.
Eternal Goodness, you have drawn us to your heart.
and united us in the sacrament of Christ’s body and blood.
Eternal Power, be our support.
Eternal Wisdom, scatter the darkness of our ignorance.
Eternal Pity, have mercy upon us.
That with all our heart and mind and soul and strength
we may seek your face and be brought by your infinite
mercy to your holy presence; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
