Luther’s Beautiful Prayer before Communing

Lord, it is true that I am not worthy for You to come under my roof, but I need and desire Your grace to make me godly. I now come to You, trusting only in the wonderful words I just heard, with which You invite me to Your table and promise me, the unworthy one, forgiveness of all my sins through Your body and blood if I eat them and drink them in this sacrament. Amen. Dear Jesus, I do not doubt the truth of Your words. Trusting them, I eat and I drink with You. Do unto me according to Your words. Amen. (AE 41:174)
