Flesh and blood

Hello to every reader. This prayer came to me in two parts over the last couple of days, so I thought I would share it with you today. It’s quite mysterious, so I honestly don’t know what to say about it, but  maybe I will come to understand it better over time, and maybe you will understand it better than me.  See what you think…

Flesh and blood

Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them (John 6:53-6; NIV).

Flesh and blood,
Bread and wine,
Forgiveness and salvation –
Lord Jesus,
You give me everything I need.

Please help me through today,
For I am nothing –
Just a little frame
Of bone and blood,
Entirely dependent on you
For life and breath.
