Prayer of commitment

Expression of gratitude for the spirit and symbols of our common union. This prayer may be offered after communion.


Gracious God,

you have welcomed us to this table

as your beloved children

and nourished us with the love of Christ

embodied in bread and cup.


Strengthen us with courage

to embrace all whom you love

as beloved children.


May your love through us

bring healing and wholeness to them and us

in the name of Jesus Christ our Saviour and Lord

and through the power of your Spirit.
