The Prayers of the People:
Leader: On this Sunday after the ascension of Christ, let us pray with amazement, wonder, awe, and astonishment.
People: Joining Christ who intercedes for all the world before God, let us offer our prayers to God.
Leader: As we move forward in our GIFT campaign, we pray O God that we remember that it is from you that every gift derives. You taught us that to serve you is to serve others. We ask that you continue to bless and sanctify the Growing in Faith Together campaign as an act of our faithfulness to you and that you will lead us to continue growing in faith together. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for St. Paul’s and St. Peter’s Episcopal Church – The Mission for the Seafarers – Aqaba. For the needs of the whole Church that we name silently or aloud (pause). For John our Bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest, for all the clergy and people.
People: O God, we stand amazed; for Christ ascended from the earth in order to be everywhere at once. We are in awe; for in leaving, Jesus has not left us alone.
Leader: We thank you, O God, for the life of your Son. Turn our eyes continually to see, and to gaze with wonder at your miraculous ways.
People: Turn the eyes of ordinary people, young and old, poor and rich, to see signs of Jesus.
Leader: Show us everywhere the signs of Jesus, who is raised up and giving freedom and working power and justice O God.
People: Turn the eyes of your church to see the poor places in which Christ now dwells.
Leader: Help us to see the body of Christ, wounded and yet bright with the light of the Spirit, O God.
People: Turn the eyes of the leaders of nations to envision a new world in which peace and harmony reign, and turn the eyes of all in power to see the oppressed and the needy.
Leader: For all who live by your inner sight, we give thanks, and for more such people to lead the peoples, we pray O God.
People: Turn the eyes of all who are gathered here to what lies beyond this place.
Leader: Help us to look toward our glorified Lord, and then to look back at our community anew, O God. Within our Parish we pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (pause). We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (pause). We pray for all in any need.
People: O God, keep us in the spirit of amazement. Keep us believing when we cannot see; keep us hoping while we wait; keep us looking for your presence. Fix our eyes on the glorious one who ascended to intercede, who will come in greatest glory, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
