Ascension Prayer: Love, lift us up

Here’s a prayer of petition for Ascension Day (or Ascension Sunday). It was written by Rachel Hackenberg, and posted on RevGalBlogPals.

Prayer for Ascension
(inspired by Acts 1:6-11)

Love, lift us up.
Lift us up to be with you,
for we are longing for the reassurance
of your presence in our lives.

Lift us up to be with you,
because we need the courage
to live boldly as your witnesses.

Love, lift us up to be with you,
because the world is dying for your wisdom
to bring about reconciliation in the world.

Lift us up to be with you,
for the markets claw at our souls
and the powers-that-be threaten us into despair.

Lift us up to be with you,
where fire and lightening burst with praise
and Light chases the shadows into submission.

Holy Love, lift us up!
