Ascension Day Affirmation

You are not only risen and alive, you are Lord.
This your ascension,
your ascendancy over the whole universe.
You stand over and above all that is best in life as its source.
You stand above all that is worst as the ultimate victor.
You stand above all powers and authorities as judge.
You stand above all failure and weakness and sin
as forgiveness and love.
You alone are worthy of total allegiance, total commitment.
You are Lord,
‘My Lord and my God.’

— written by Rex Chapman, in A Treasury of Prayer (compiled by Tony Castle).
