Bible Reading and Prayer
for Thursday 11th June 2020
Welcome to our virtual morning Bible Reading & Prayer for today.
Day of thanksgiving for the institution of Holy Communion (Corpus Christi)
1 Corinthians 11.23-26
The Institution of the Lord’s Supper
For I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night
when he was betrayed took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said,
‘This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way he took the
cup also, after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as
you drink it, in remembrance of me.’ For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you
proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
Prayer for today-Corpus Christi
Lord Jesus Christ, we thank you that in this wonderful sacrament you have given us the
memorial of your passion: grant us so to reverence the sacred mysteries of your body and blood
that we may know within ourselves and show forth in our lives the fruits of your redemption; for
you are alive and reign with the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
