O

Lord Jesus

Christ, Who said to Your Apostles: “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you,” regard not my sins but the

faith

of Your Church, and deign to give her peace and

unity

according to Your Will: Who live and reign, God, world without end. Amen.

O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, Who, by the will of the Father, with the cooperation of the Holy Spirit, have by Your death given life to the world, deliver me by this Your Most Sacred Body and Blood from all my sins and from every evil. Make me always cling to Your commandments, and never permit me to be separated from You. Who with the same God the Father and the Holy Spirit, live and reign, God, world without end. Amen.

Let not the partaking of Your Body, O Lord Jesus Christ, which I, though unworthy, presume to receive, turn to my judgment and condemnation; but through Your goodness, may it become a safeguard and an effective remedy, both of soul and body. Who live and reign with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, world without end. Amen.

Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof; but only say the word, and my soul will be healed. (3 times.)

(One of the goals of Brothers of John the Steadfast is to train the Brothers in good practice and theology. This article is one in a series that teaches about the liturgy. We apologize for the long delay between the last posting and this posting; the pastor who was helping us update these took a call to another place and hasn’t had enough time to work on them. Thanks to Pastor Mohr for stepping up to finish this series.

These articles were initially intended to be put into bulletins or read during the service to educate the laity on the different parts of the service. They were therefore purposefully made short.

Notes on the Liturgy #18 — Pre-Communion Prayer and Lord’s Prayer

The prayer before Communion (LSB pp. 161/178 and 209) is part of the preparation for Communion. It continues in the spirit of thanksgiving that started with the Preface. The prayer also points us away from ourselves and places the emphasis on God who is the host at the Lord’s Supper. We bring the wine, bread, set up the altar but God is the one doing the feeding.

The Pre-Communion Prayer also teaches us. Read the words carefully for yourself. It teaches us that God has had mercy on us in Christ. It teaches us that we can’t save ourselves but have redemption in Jesus. It teaches us that God Himself has gathered us and all Christians from the ends of the earth to this meal, which is the unending marriage feast of the Lamb (p. 161/178). It teaches us that, though we were barred from the tree of life in the garden of Eden, God has planted a new tree at Calvary; in the Lord’s Supper, we take and eat the fruits of the tree of life and live forever (p. 209).

In connection to the Lord’s Supper we speak the Lord’s Prayer. (Indeed, in LSB Divine Service Three and Divine Service Five, this is the only Pre-Communion Prayer.) Note the fifth petition, “…and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive…” Having prayed for forgiveness, we receive it by faith as the body & blood is given to us under the bread and the wine. Thus, in Communion, God gives us a resounding and immediate “yes” to our request.
