Ascension

lookingupOur prayers this day, the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord

For what are we looking towards the sky, Lord?

We stand here clapping our hands, shouting to God with cries of gladness. We sing praises to God, sing praises to our King, sing praise. God reigns over all the nations. The Lord has taken his holy throne. And, yet, we sit.

Trumpet blasts and there are many shouts for our God who is an awesome God who reigns from heaven above with wisdom, power, and love. Our God is an awesome God. And, yet, we sit.

We really don’t know the times or seasons. We have received power from the Holy Spirit. We are called to be the Lord’s witnesses to all the nations. Some are meant to be apostles, others prophets, still others evangelists, and maybe even pastors and teachers. We are to build up the body of Christ until we all attain the unity of faith. We are compelled to go forth and preach everywhere, proclaiming the gospel to everyone in the whole world, equipping the holy ones for the work of ministry. And, yet, we sit.

For what are we looking towards the sky, Lord? Work through us, Lord. Let’s go! <image source>
