Miracles in Parallel (DRAFT FOR MAJOR EDIT WORK)

Whenever I pray the prayer following Communion, I feel it in parallel miracles– a series of equally-amazing, realted actions.

Eternal God, heavenly Father, two ideas here

you have graciously accepted us as living members
of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ, here’s part 1A..

and you have fed us with spiritual food
in the Sacrament of his Body and Blood. and the parallel to 1A, this is 1B

And this next part (Part 2),  is parallel to Part 1

Send us now into the world in peace, here is 2A
and grant us strength and courage
to love and serve you
with gladness and singleness of heart;
here’s 2B
through Christ our Lord. Amen.

====

Or this way:

Eternal God, heavenly Father,

First, quite amazingly you have graciously accepted us as living members
of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ,
and you have fed us with spiritual food
in the Sacrament of his Body and Blood.


And if you can do that– then heck! You can also

Send us now into the world in peace,
and [we will obviously need you to] grant us strength and courage
to love and serve you
with gladness and singleness of heart;(!!!)
through Christ our Lord. Amen.
