communion liturgy

Was especially blessed by this section of a Kenyan communion liturgy when we attended an Anglican service.  May use this to close my message on Sunday...

"It is right and our delight to give you thanks and praise, 
Holy Father, living God, supreme over the world, 
Creator, Provider, Savior and Giver. 
From a wandering nomad (Abraham) you created your family; 
for a burdened people you raised up a leader (Moses); 
for a confused nation you chose a king (David); 
for a rebellious crowd you sent your prophets. 
In these last days you have sent us your Son, 
your perfect image, 
bringing your kingdom, revealing your will,
dying, rising, reigning, remaking your people for yourself. 
Through him you have poured out your Holy Spirit, 
filling us with light and life. 
Therefore with angels, archangels, and all in heaven, 
we proclaim your great and glorious name."
