Heavenly Father, we thank you for this Cup and the blood of grapes symbolizing the blood of the True Vine, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour. Thank you, gracious Lord, for reconciliation and new life by the power and presence of the Holy Spirit as we participate in Jesus’ transfigured humanity. May we proclaim the Lord’s death until He returns, for you have chosen to strengthen and renew us at this most blessed table. Come, Lord Jesus. Amen.
