Prayer for Maundy Thursday

O God of our garden prayers,
to whom our souls cry out of the depths:
grant that we in our dark hours
might sense Jesus kneeling before us,
gently washing our feet,
and then find him feeding us
with the bread and wine,
his own body and blood,
and promising us another Comforter,
found when we love one another;
guide us, Father, in the works of love,
that through your Son and in the Spirit
we might become one people as you are One God.
Amen.

  1. Beautiful. Thanks for writing and sharing.

  2. Amen.

  3. I love reading these prayers during holy week. Sometimes being Mormon feels like being completely untethered to our Christian community during this special time. Thank you for letting me pray with you and connect to a tradition that is bigger, wider, and older than the little branch I know.

  4. I’m very glad to be praying with you!

    Love this and perfect for right now.

  6. So many of my Christian friends are immersed in this. I yearn to be a part. I think next year I will. Thanks for giving me a slice of it.
