We pause to offer prayers and thanksgiving that we bring to our celebration of Holy Communion.




O God,

form the minds of your faithful people,

that we may love what you command

and desire  what you promise,

so that, amid the many changes of this world,

our hearts may there be fixed where true joys are to be found;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever. Amen


Congregation  Response to the Two Great Commandments:

Lord, have mercy on us:

and write your law in our hearts by your Holy Spirit.
