Over the years of collecting and sharing prayers in the Season of Lent, the “Prayer of Humble Access” was offered by several persons as having had a significant impact on their spirituality. ~Fr. Dan
We do not presume to come to this thy Table, O merciful Lord, trusting in our own righteousness, but in thy manifold and great mercies. We are not worthy so much as to gather up the crumbs under thy Table. But thou art the same Lord whose property is always to have mercy. Grant us therefore, gracious Lord, so to eat the flesh of thy dear Son Jesus Christ, and to drink his blood, that we may evermore dwell in him, and he in us. Amen.
