Prayers for First Communion Here are some prayers for your child's First Communion The first three are perfect for learning with your child before receiving the sacrament and the last for after your child's First Communion. Prayer Before Communion My Lord Jesus Christ, I firmly believe that I am about to receive, in Communion, Your Body, Your Blood, Your Soul and Your Divinity. I believe it because You have said it, and I am ready to give my life to maintain this truth. Guardian Angel Prayer Angel of God, My guardian dear, To whom His love Commits me here; Ever this day (or night) Be at my, side, To light and guard, To rule and guide. Amen. An Act of Spiritual Communion My Jesus, I believe that You are in the Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I long for You in my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. As though You have already come, I embrace You and unite myself entirely to You; never permit me to be separated from You. My First Communion The first time I received Jesus Was a wonderous day for me to be united with Christ, my Saviour Who died for us on Calvary. This card reminds me to thank Him for the special gift He gave: The sacrament of Holy Eucharist through which we all are saved. It helps me think of the first time Jesus came into my heart And if I but follow His message He and I will never part. As Jesus said on that holy night so many years ago If we but take and eat this bread Eternal life we will know. Each time I receive communion I'll think of His love for me And I'll thank Him for giving to us the greatest miracle in history.
