Prayer For Ascension Day
Oh Lord, we commemorate this special day the day of ascension along with the many things You did here on earth. Your scripture declares that whoever believes in the works that You did on earth, will do even greater things, because Your Son returned to You in heaven. I thank You for giving us divine authority to be more like Jesus, I walk in Your power, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
Eternal God, I give You the honor and praise because You are great! You sent Your Son to appear in the flesh, to then be vindicated by the Spirit. Your Son was seen by angels, preached among the nations, believed on in the world and taken up in glory. Hallelujah for the hidden truth of godliness! So on this ascension Sunday, we thank You for allowing us to comprehend just a segment of You awesome and divine power, Amen.
Righteous God, I thank You for the many rooms that You have prepared for us. Lord, I thank You for ensuring that I can spend eternity with You after death through the resurrection power of Your Son Jesus. Your Word says that if You had not prepared a place for me, You would not have told me so. Therefore, on this ascension Sunday, I thank You for sending Your Son so that I may be saved, Amen.
Oh Lord, thank You for Your benevolent nature. Whilst Your Son was taken up into heaven, He blessed us here on earth. I pray that I do not take for granted the blessings that You have given me, instead I receive them with my whole heart. So on this ascension Sunday, Father I give You the glory, honor and praise because of who You are and because of all that You have done, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
Righteous God, I thank You for this ascension Sunday and for Your divine authority. Your Word says that You alone set the dates and times for things to happen and it is through You that we receive power. I thank You for the ascension of Your son Jesus, because of Him we are given divine authority and guidance here on earth through Your Holy Spirit. I give you thanks because I know that someday You will return from heaven in the same way You ascended from earth, Amen.
Heavenly Father, I thank You for sending Your Son who was with us only for a short time. Thank You for being the living water that quenches the thirst of all those who long for You. I give You praise for being Your resurrection power, it is because of You that we too can have everlasting life with You in heaven. I pray that we do not take for granted this special day, Amen.
O God, you have glorified our victorious Savior
with a triumphant resurrection from the dead,
and ascension into heaven,
where he sits at your right hand.
Grant, we ask you,
that his triumphs and glories may ever shine in our eyes
to make us see more clearly through his sufferings,
and more courageously endure our own;
being assured by his example,
that if we endeavor to live and die like him,
for the cause of your love in ourselves and others,
you will raise our dead bodies again,
and conforming them to his glorious body,
call us above the clouds,
and give us possession of your everlasting kingdom.
Through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
O God of earth and sky,
as Jesus came among us in Bethlehem to raise us up to heaven,
so today we recall his departing from us at Jerusalem to be in all places.
Though he is hidden from our sight,
enable us to abide in him
by the power and grace of the Holy Spirit,
until his mercy and grace fill your whole creation. Amen.
