Holy Eucharist - Eucharistic prayers, Saint John Chrysostom                             Before receiving Holy Communion
Saint John Chrysostom

Oh Lord, I believe and I profess that You are the true Christ, the Son of the living God that came to this world to save sinners, of which I am the first. Accept me as a participant in your Mystical Supper, Oh Son of God.

I will not reveal your mystery to your enemies, nor will I give You a kiss as did Judas, but as the good thief, I recognize You.

Remember me Oh Lord when you come to your Kingdom. Remember, Oh Master, when You come to your Kingdom. Remember me, Oh Holy One, when You come to your Kingdom.

That my participation in your Holy Mysteries, Oh Lord, may not be my judgment and condemnation, but to heal my soul and my body.

Oh Lord, I also believe and profess that I am about to receive what is truly your Most Precious Body and vivifying Blood, of which I ask You to make me worthy to receive, for the remission of all my sins and eternal life. Amen.

Oh Lord, be merciful with me, a sinner.
Oh Lord, cleanse me from my sins and have mercy on me.
Oh Lord, forgive me, because I have sinned innumerable times.
