Sixth Sunday of Easter

Prayer of the Day

O God of wonder and might, You call us friends and tell us all that you do. Grant that we may remember this in all that we do and all that we meet. All this we ask through your Son,  Jesus Christ our Lord who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Eucharistic Prayer

O God of wisdom and strength,  your spirit comes upon us and call us your children,  sending Jesus to all humanity: to teach, preach, bear witness to the coming kingdom, and to die–so that the body of sin might be destroyed.

In the night in which he was betrayed, our Lord Jesus took bread, and gave thanks, broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, Take and eat! This is my body, given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.

Again, after supper, he took the cup, gave thanks, and gave it for all to drink saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood, shed for you and for all people for the forgiveness of sin. Do this in remembrance of me.

Through Christ Jesus’ death and resurrection, we are saved, dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus. As often as we eat this bread and drink this cup, we proclaim Christ’s death until he comes again in glory.

Christ has died. Christ has risen. Christ will come again.

Send down your Holy Spirit, O Lord, upon these gifts and upon your people, that we may be ready when the time of the Lord is at hand. All this we ask through your Son Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you, in unity with the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.
