My Daily Bread- a poem

To acknowledge what Christ Jesus did for us, a daily communion reassures us with eternal life.

During Christian church services, and in the Catholic Church there is the practice of Holy Communion. It represents what Christ Jesus experienced before he went to Calvary for his death on the cross. It was Jesus' last time to bond with his apostles, so he shared a meal with them. He represented the Father God in heaven, who allowed Jesus to change the bread and the wine into his body and his blood. This writer interpreted this miracle as that we become like Him, as we receive His being within. It represents a union between human and Christ's Spirit.

Receiving communion daily as a part of devotion and prayer to the Lord is very fulfilling. If one does not confess one's sins and acknoweledge Christ Jesus as our Savior will bring condemnation to one's soul, so it has been told. It is always best to pray the Lord's Prayer, which is in the bible in the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 6, verses 9-13:

"Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day, our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen."

I have ended my rest

Now it is time to fill

My soul with energy.

Time to break the fast

That swept me from dreams

Of the night

To wakefulness of the day.

The choice to sacrifice the

First taste of my palate is

To take a holy communion.

I recognize that it represents

The greatest act of devotion that

The Son of God ever gave to us.

Then daily communion along with

The will to forgive as He forgave us,

Is the greatest thanks we can give

Our Lord Jesus.

So as I take my morsel of bread

And raise my cup,

I honor Him, then I

Know that the Lord

Will Honor me.

My daily devotion is

Not complete until I confess

With my mouth that Jesus

Died for my sins and I believe

That He is the answer to

Eternal Life.
