ASCENSION PRAYER

Risen, ascended Lord,

you came down

to lift us up.


You descended to earth

that earth might ascend to heaven.


You descended to the dead

that the dead might rise to life.


In our struggles

lift us up.


In our tiredness

lift us up.


Lift us Lord

out of darkness into light,

out of despair into hope.


Lift us Lord

out of sadness into joy,

out of failure into trust.


Lift us Lord

out of anger into forgiveness

out of pride into humility.


Lift us Lord

out of doubt into faith

out of loneliness into community.


Lift us Lord

out of death into life.


Lift us into your heart

to be with you for all eternity.

Amen.


(Adapted from Liturgies from Lindisfarne)
