Glorious God, on this feast of the Ascension you give us a glimpse into your everlasting life. With trust we pray: 

Lead us to your truth, O God.  

Inspire your Church to teach, preach, and spread your saving Word. 

Lead us to your truth, O God.  

Unite all people in addressing conflicts and environmental crises with peaceful measures. 

Lead us to your truth, O God.  

Animate the faith and perseverance of those who have been welcomed into the Church this Easter season. 

Lead us to your truth, O God.  

Our Father . . .  

May God bless us and hold us in love, through Jesus our brother, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
