Prayer: True and Living Bread

Opening Collect
(based on Matthew 14:15-21, John 6)

Almighty God,
your Son Jesus Christ
fed the hungry
with the bread of his life
and the word of his kingdom.
Renew your people with your heavenly grace,
and in all our weakness
sustain us by the true and living bread,
Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
