holy communion

Bread of life and cup of hope, we come as gift
to you. Change our hearts; fill us with peace.
Transform our lives anew. Open our eyes so that
we might see your presence in one another. Your
life, poured out in love today, unites us all in you.

Loving Lord, Creator God, open our eyes to see
the good that lives in each of us, that called the
world to be. And when we fail to see the good,
when friendships falter and crumble, give us the
courage to forgive that we may live in peace.

Living Word, O Son of God, your love shows us
the way that we may live in harmony, and from
you never stray. Wipe all oppression from our
midst; give us a love for all people. your song
of justice sing in us, to live for peace today.
