Ascension of the Lord
We praise you, O God, for the ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ; we praise you that he has taken his place at your right hand from where he reigns eternally over everything that is.
We praise you, O God, that the Lord Jesus is also right here with us, reigning eternally over everything that we are.
Cause the twin facts of the reign of Christ over the universe and over us to inspire us to great hope and great trust.
Cause us to look to him at your right hand and to look to him right here so that we might see our service to him as an important part of what he is doing to work out your eternal purposes.
