through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Post Communion Prayer

Just and merciful God,
we have heard your word
and received new life at your table.
Kindle in us the flame of love
by which your apostle Barnabas bore witness to the gospel,
and send us out in Jesus’ name
to encourage our brothers and sisters in faith.
We ask this for his sake.
