Communion Prayers for Holy Days and Holidays
Alec Langford's collection of more than 100 prayers will help leaders in worship keep the sacrament of communion a living, vital experience of God's grace.
Prayers follow the liturgical year, but also mention secular holidays, with a special section featuring prayers for special occasions in the life of the church and in the lives of individual Christians. They are "available for seeding ideas," Langford says, urging readers to adapt them for their own use as they keep communion a holy exercise of the human's approach to the divine.
"Alec Langford has provided a very helpful model for succinct and elegant communion prayers. All who preside at the Lord's Supper can benefit from this guide, and all who regularly dine at the banquet will be refreshed by the varied images used to reveal the power of the bread and cup. This book is a blessing."
