Pulpit Notes: A Prayer in Preparation for Communion

O God, we pray for bread; You prepare a feast.
We reach for a cup; You offer us salvation.

Lord, to whom shall we go? Only You offer the Word of life. Grant us these few moments of meditation and prayer, O God, that we might behold in Your Word all that is eternal and true. Nourish our souls and prepare us, not simply to be guests to Your Kingdom feast, but to be servants to all those whom You have invited. Father, let not our hearts, nor our souls, become callused in the handling of the Holy, lest we fail to detect the touch of Jesus through the hands of those whom we serve.  Amen.

Soli Deo Gloria,

Reverend Dr. Conrad C. Sharps
Senior Pastor
