Eucharistic Prayer For Children 3

EUCHARISTIC PRAYER FOR CHILDREN 3

We thank you, God our Father

you made us to live for you and for each other.

We can see and speak to one another, and become friends

and share our joys and sorrows.

And so, Father, we gladly thank you

with everyone who believes in you;

with the saints and the angels, we rejoice and praise you saying.

HOLY.

Yes, Lord, you are holy;

you are kind to us and to all peoples,

For this we thank you and above all we thank you for your Son, Jesus Christ.

You sent him into this world because people had turned away from you

and no longer loved each other.

he opened our eyes and our hearts to understand that we are brothers and sisters

and that you are Father of us all.

he now brings us together to one table and asks us to do what he did.

Father, we ask you to bless these gifts of bread and wine and make them holy.

Change them for us into the body and blood of Jesus Christ your Son.

On the night before he died for us,

he had supper for the last time with his disciples.

he took bread and gave you thanks

He broke the bread and gave it to his friends saying.

TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND EAT IT. THIS IS MY BODY WHICH WILL BE GIVEN UP FOR YOU.

In the same way he took a cup of wine. he gave you thanks and handed the cup to his disciples saying.

TAKE THIS ALL OF YOU AND DRINK FROM IT

THIS IS THE CUP OF MY BLOOD, THE BLOOD OF THE NEW AND EVERLASTING COVENANT. IT WILL BE SHED FOR YOU AND FOR ALL SO THAT SINS MAY BE FORGIVEN. THEN HE SAID TO THEM. DO THIS IN MEMORY OF ME.

God our Father, we remember with joy all that Jesus did to save us.

In this holy sacrifice, which he gave as a gift to his Church, we remember his death and resurrection.

Father in heaven,accept us together with your beloved Son, he willingly died for us, but you raised him to life again.

We thank you and say……

Jesus now lives with you in glory, but he is also here on earth, among us

we thank you and say….

One day he will come in glory and in his kingdom there will be no more suffering,no more tears and no more sadness.

we thank you and say……

Father in heaven, you have called us to receive the body and blood of Christ at this table

and to be filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit.

Through this sacred meal give us strength to please you more and more.

Lord, our God remember….our Pope,….our bishop, and all the other bishops

Help all who follow Jesus to work for peace and to bring happines to others.

bring us all at last together with Mary, the Mother of God, and all the saints, to live with you and to be one with Christ in heaven.

Through him, with him ,in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, all glory and honour is yours Almighty Father, for ever and ever.
