A
DRAFT MELANESIAN LITURGY


Private Preparation.
Jesus Christ comes to me in Holy
Communion. He gives me his Body
broken for me and his Blood shed for
me. He. gives me his life to feed my
soul and strengthen my body.
To prepare for receiving Jesus in
Holy Communion I need Repentance,
Faith and Love.
Repentance.
Holy Spirit of God, help ne. to see my sins, and make me truly sorry for
then.
(Think about your life to find out
your sins. If you are worried about
so no sins, ask the priest to hear
your confession).
0 ny God, I have, sinned very much
against you. I an very sorry that I
have, hurt you by my sins. I know
that Jesus died for me to set me free
from sin. I trust in Jesus for my forgiveness, and with your help I
want to obey you and put away all sin.
Faith."
Father, I believe that you sent your
Son Jesus to be my Saviour.
I believe that I shall receive him
in Holy Communion.
I put my trust in Jesus, not myself.


Love.
O Father, I love you because while
we were still sinners you sent Jesus
to die for us.
Jesus, I want to love yon truly be-
cause you first loved me.
Jesus, come to me and give me life,
and may I never leave you.
We do not trust in our own right-
eousness, O Lord, when we come to
your holy table, but in your great
mercy. We are not worthy even to
gather the crumbs from under your
table. But you are always merciful. Grant us therefore, gracious Lord,
so to eat the body of your dear Son
Jesus Christ, and to drink his. blood,
that we may evermore live. in him
and he in us. Amen.
Almighty God, to whom all hearts
are open, all desires known, and
from whom no secrets are hidden;
cleanse our thoughts by the breath,
of your Holy Spirit, so that we may
truly love you. and worthily praise
your holy name; through Christ our
Lord. Amen.

Hear us, merciful Father, and
grant that taking this bread and

on the cross, took bread, and when
he had given thanks he brake it and
gave'it to .his disciples, and said,
Take, eat, this is my body which is
given, for you; do this in remembrance
of ne#
In the same way after supper he

Drink this, all of you, for this is
my blood of the new covenant' which
is shed for yon and for many, for
the forgiveness of sins; do this, as L
often as you drink it, in remembrance

And so Father, we do this as your

one perfect sacrifice, made on the
cross for the sin of the world, for
his nighty resurrection and glorious
ascension, which we bring before
1 you in this sacranent of the bread

the body of your Son Jesus Christ
our Lord, through whom and in whom,
in the unity of the Eoly Spirit,
all honour and glory be to you,
almighty Father, for ever_ and ever
Amen.
As our Lord has taught us, we say-
Our Father in heaven, holy be your
name, your role come, your will be
done, in the world as it is in
heaven. Give us this day our food
for today. Forgive us what we do
wrong as we forgive those who do
wrong to us. Bring us not into zl
trouble to try us, but save us from
evil. For yours is the rule and the


power and the glory for ever and
ever. Anen.
