Prayers of the People/Intercession for Ascension Sunday

Sermon Illustrations on the Ascension

O Lord Jesus Christ, who after your resurrection from the dead did gloriously ascend into heaven: Grant us the aid of your loving- kindness, that according to your promise you will always dwell with us on earth, and we with you in heaven, where with the Father and the Holy Spirit you  live and reign one God for ever and ever. Amen.

Gelasian Sacramentary

Almighty God, whose blessed Son our Saviour Jesus Christ ascended far above all heavens, that he might fill all things: Merci­fully give us faith to perceive that according to his promise he abides with his Church on earth, even unto the end of the world; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord.
