Prayer for the making of a Spiritual Communion under the special circumstances of the CoronaVirus Pandemic. 

This prayer is to be used by virtual participants in a livestream of the Holy Eucharist at the point when those physically present are invited to receive Holy Communion.

[Lord, the community of which we are members has taken bread and wine and blessed them, broken the bread and shared the wine according to you command. Though physically distanced, we are spiritual witnesses to the sacramental sign of your abiding presence with your Christian people in the communion of your body- the bread of heaven, and of your blood – the cup of salvation.]

Loving Creator, we give you thanks and praise that though physically distanced you bring us together through this sacrament of the body and blood of Christ. By his dying and living, you declare your love, give us grace, and open to us the gate of glory. For we who share Christ’s body live his risen life; We who drink his cup bring life to others; We whom the Spirit lights give light to the world. Keep us firm in the hope you have set before us, that we and all your children shall be free, and the whole earth live to praise your name through, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
