Let peace dwell here

So many hearts build a school

Communion Prayers

During this time of preparation, encourage your child to learn not only the prayers of the Mass, but also some prayers which can be said in the heart before receiving communion and after communion.

 

Before Holy Communion

Lord Jesus, come to me.

Lord Jesus, give me your love.

Lord Jesus, come to me and give me yourself.

Lord Jesus, friend of children, come to me.

Lord Jesus, you are my Lord and my God.

Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. (Seomra Ranga)

 

After Holy Communion

Lord Jesus, I love and adore you.

You're a special friend to me.

Welcome, Lord Jesus, O welcome.

Thank you for coming to me.

Thank you, Lord Jesus, O thank you.

For giving yourself to me.

Make me strong to show your love.

Wherever I may be.

Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask you to stay.

Close by me forever and love me, I pray.

Bless all of us children in your loving care.

And bring us to heaven to live with you there.

I'm ready now, Lord Jesus,

To show you how much I care.

I'm ready now to give your love

At home and everywhere. Amen. (Seomra Ranga)

 

Parent's Prayer After Holy Communion

Lord Jesus I give you my hands to do your work.

I give you my feet to go your way.

I give you my eyes to see as you see.

I give you my tongue to speak your words.

I give you my mind that you may think in me.

I give you my heart that you may love in me - love the Father and all humankind.

I give you my whole self that you may grow in me,

so that you, Lord, may be the one who lives and works and prays in me.
