Lord God, you draw and welcome us,
emptied of pride and hungry for grace,
to this your kingdom feast.
Nowhere can we find the food for which our souls cry out
but here, Lord at your table.
Invigorate and nourish us, good Lord,
that in and through this Bread and Wine
your love may meet us and your life complete us
in the power and glory of your kingdom. Amen
