5 Versions of Communion Prayers, Bible Verses included
The Last Supper
On the night when Jesus was handed over to be killed, He ate a final meal with His disciples, known as The Last Supper.
In 1 Corinthians Chapter 11, we read: He took bread and gave thanks for it. Then He broke the bread and said, “This is my body; it is for you. Do this to remember Me.”
In the same way, after they ate, Jesus took the cup. He said, “This cup is the new agreement that is sealed with the blood of My death. When you drink this, do it to remember Me.”
This is the reason we commune with God – it’s a sacred time to remember Jesus and recognize what He went through for us on the cross.
The bread symbolizes His body that was broken, and the wine symbolizes His blood that was poured out for us.
A Sacred Time of Remembrance
This time is a personal, beautiful time between us and our Savior, Jesus Christ. It is beneficial to take a moment to examine our hearts and minds before we partake of Holy Communion (also known as The Lord’s Supper or the Eucharist).
It honors God when we give thought to: What Jesus suffered for us, search our hearts for any sins that we need to repent of, and take joy in knowing that we have been rescued – our sins are forgiven, we belong to God, and we have the incredible gift of eternal life!
What Are We Celebrating?
When we partake of communion, we are proclaiming that Jesus died for us, rose from the dead, and that He will come again! We wait in confident expectation for His return.
We aren’t just remembering what has been done for us, we are remembering forward – living on the foundation of God’s history with our eyes fixed on His glorious future.
Below are five versions of Communion Prayers for you to pray by yourself or with your brothers and sisters in Christ. Be blessed!
