NATIONAL ALTAR GUILD PRAYER

 

Most gracious Father Who has called me Your child to serve

in the preparation of Your Altar, so that it may be a siutable place

for the offering of Your Body and Blood;

Sanctify my life and consecrate my hands so that I may worthily handle

Those Sacred Gifts which are being offered to You.

As I handle holy things, grant that my whole life may be illuminated

and blessed by You, in whose honor I prepare them,

and grant that the people who shall be blessed by their use,

May find their lives drawn closer to Him Whose Body and Blood

is our hope and our strength, Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN.
