Alec Langford's collection of more than 100 prayers will help leaders in worship keep the sacrament of communion a living, vital experience of God's grace. Prayers follow the liturgical year, but also mention secular holidays, with a special section featuring prayers for special occasions in the life of the church and in the lives of individual Christians. They are qavailable for seeding ideas, q Langford says, urging readers to adapt them for their own use as they keep communion a holy exercise of the human's approach to the divine.Compassion We come, unstinting God, to this act of sharing bread and wine. With thankfulness, we receive your unmatched gifts. With confession, we admit to our lack of preparation to be in your presence. With joy, we gather with your people.
