Words for Ascension Day services

Collects.

Risen Christ

You have raised  our human nature to the throne of heaven:

Help us to seek and serve you,

that we may join you at the Father’s side,

where you reign with the spirit in glory

Now and for ever.

Amen.

 

Eternal and gracious God,

grant that as we believe your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ

to have ascended with triumph into your kingdom in heaven,

so may we also in heart and mind ascend to where he is

and with him continually dwell;

who is alive and reigns with you

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.

Amen.

 

The Peace.

Jesus says: Peace I leave you, my peace I give to you.

If you love me, rejoice because I am going to the Father. Alleluia.

The peace of the Lord we always with you.

 

Post Communion Prayers.

Eternal God, giver of love and power

your Son Jesus Christ has sent us into all the world

to preach the gospel of his kingdom:

confirm us in this mission

and help us to live the good news we proclaim;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

 

Goodness is stronger than evil

Love is stronger than hate

Light is stronger than darkness

Life is stronger than death

Victory is ours through the one who loves us:

Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

 

Blessing

Go forth in power and gladness

That we may do justice

make peace

share joy

and grow

And the blessing…
