Communion is a very special time where you can take part in remembering all that Jesus did for you on the Cross and through His Resurrection.
This is a time to stop and examine oneself. Use it as a means in which to reflect on your life and your walk with the Lord.
What you say during a Communion prayer, why partake in the giving of thanks, and what is the Lord's Supper, are all questions that will be answered.
The 8 powerful prayers below are anointed and you can use them as often as you like to share in the body and blood of the risen Jesus Christ.
1) Examine Me Father
Father, I bow my knees before You during this time of reflection. Help me examine my faith as I come before You. I will eat this bread and drink this cup as You instruct in the Bible. Thank You because the price that Jesus paid allows me to participate in communion. Your love for me was expressed without question as You gave Your Son for me. Strengthen and cleanse me. Amen.
2) Thank You Lord
Dear God, there is no one like Your Son! He paid the price for me while I was yet a sinner. He was nailed to the Cross on my behalf and I raise my hands in gratitude! Forgive me if I have fallen short. As I take this bread and drink this cup, I do so because of Jesus. I love and reverence You Lord. Amen.
3) It's All About Jesus
Everlasting Father, Jesus came that I might have life through Him. In the scriptures, He showed us how to take the bread and the cup in remembrance of Him. I am following His instructions now and I take this time of reflection seriously. Thank You that through His sacrifice I have been set free indeed. In His Name, amen.
4) Until He Comes Again
God, it is important that I adhere to what Your Word says about the Lord's Supper. I am taking the bread and the cup and will do so until Jesus comes again.

My sins have been washed and I am now a child of God. Amen.

Dear God, Jesus made it clear that if we eat His flesh and drink His blood we can have the promised everlasting life. Hallelujah! I believe and in remembrance of Him I am taking this bread and cup now. Thank You for watching over me and preparing a place in Heaven when my time here on earth is complete. All I want to do is honor You here on earth. In Jesus' Name, amen.
6) None Can Compare
Heavenly Father, You are the Great I Am! None can compare to You! Thank You that through Communion, I can express my relationship with You! I now have eternal life through You. All that Jesus did for me was more than enough that I might spend eternity with You. Words cannot fully express my thankfulness. Amen.
