Ascension Prayer

Let us pray that the risen Christ
will lead us to eternal life:
God our Father,
make us joyful
in the ascension of Your Son Jesus Christ.
May we follow him into the new Creation,
for his ascension is our glory and our hope.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son
who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
