You may wish to find a space for prayer in front of a cross, a candle, or a special place.
You might choose to make your Spiritual Communion at a particular time of day, or after viewing a streamed online service.
Reflect on the day and on your relationships.
- - What good things have come from God today?
- - Where have I fallen short?
- - What might I do tomorrow?
Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.
Then say the Lord’s Prayer.
Our Father in heaven
Give thanks for the saving death and resurrection of Jesus and ask Him to be with you now.
Thanks be to You, Lord Jesus Christ,
for all the benefits You have given me,
for all the pains and insults You have borne for me.
Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally,
I ask You to come spiritually into my heart.
O most merciful redeemer, friend and brother,
may I know You more clearly,
love You more dearly,
and follow You more nearly, day by day. Amen.
You might then add one or more of the following prayers:
Lord Jesus Christ, You said to Your disciples,
‘I am with you always’.
Be with me today, as I offer myself to You.
Hear my prayers for others and for myself,
and keep me in Your care. Amen.
help me to trust You,
help me to know that You are with me,
help me to believe that nothing can separate me from Your love
revealed in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Lord, in these days of mercy,
make us quiet and prayerful;
in these days of challenge, make us stronger in You;
in these days of emptiness,
take possession of us;
in these days of waiting,
open our hearts to the mystery of Your cross.
Almighty God, Father of all mercies,
we Your unworthy servants give You
most humble and hearty thanks
for all Your goodness and loving kindness.
We bless You for our creation, preservation, and
all the blessings of this life;
but above all for Your immeasurable love
in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ,
for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory.
And give us, we pray, such a sense of all Your mercies
that our hearts may be unfeignedly thankful,
and that we show forth Your praise,
not only with our lips but in our lives,
by giving up ourselves to Your service,
and by walking before You in holiness and
righteousness all our days;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
to whom, with You and the Holy Spirit,
be all honour and glory,
for ever and ever.
Conclude with the following:
The Lord bless us, and preserve us from all evil,
and keep us in eternal life. Amen.
