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.
