A Eucharist Prayer:
Blessed Jesus, come and walk with us as we travel the dusty roads of life together. Come and talk with us. Enlighten our understanding of each other and of the world you have given to us. Come to us and abide with us now and until the eventide of life. Be with us in the breaking of the bread so that our friendship may be kept ever beautiful in the joy of your presence. Amen.
Called to Faith:
O Lord, call us by name and help us to see our need for a true and lasting faith.
May belief in your name spread from our homes and our schools that all may come to believe. May our trust in you and in your promises lead others to you. May our deeds find their inspiration in you so that your love may reach out and touch the hearts of everyone we encounter. Let your mercy heal our broken world and may there be peace and consolation in all our hearts. Direct us in the ways of faith. Amen.
