Words of Invitation:
The Lord Jesus says to his church, Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
As we approach this table the Lord calls us to recognise our need of him and to put our complete dependence in him. He through these elements desires to draw near to you, come and receive his grace. Come with an openness of heart to receive every blessing he wants to impart to you. Praise him for the wonder of your salvation and look to him to bring healing to you inbody, mind and spirit.
Come to this table knowing that Jesus wants to bless you more than you can ever imagine. Come having confessed you sin to receive his manifold blessing to you and to his Church.
Heavenly Father we come to you in the name of our exalted King, the Lord Jesus, we seek his blessing around this table. We confess our sins before you knowing that out of your amazing grace you will forgive us. We also come as needy people needing your healing touch upon our lives. Come we pray in the power of your Spirit and minister to us in the way you see we need. Glorify your great and holy name as we celebrate your goodness to us at this table. In Jesus name Amen
