Communion Thanksgiving

We shared communion in worship yesterday.  Part of our routine is that we are given the opportunity to spend time in prayer at the altar rail.  While I like this, I find it difficult to pray during this time because the congregation is signing. Cross signals in my brain:  I listen to the music instead of being able to pray.

During this prayer time yesterday, I decided to only pray thanksgiving. I think having that focus enabled me to pray, and the purpose of praying thanksgiving loosed gratitude from my heart into my prayer.  It was uplifting and joyous to remember all the ways my life is full of God's blessings.  

I recommend it to you, for any moment, not just communion.
