Sunday 12th May 2013 – Ascension C (3)

Lord of the heavens,

You are to be praised

in word, song and noise.

King of heaven and earth,

You assemble all people

that in Your presence

they might experience

the wonder and love

of belonging to You.


When all around us

might slip into chaos and unknown,

You, mighty God,

are an everlasting strength

that guides our lives

and nurtures creation.


Lord who enlightens

our vision of the world

and the understanding of ourselves,

in Your presence

we notice our flaws and failings.

We easily grow despondent

to all that surrounds us,

and the company of others.


we criticise and undermine,

and live amongst the “mights have beens”

and “could have dones.”

As we reflect upon

Your invitation

to look towards God,

we await Christ’s lifting us

to heavenly values.




Forgiven by You,

Creator God,

may we live in the richness

of Your strength

that guides us

as we share Christ’s love and justice

in our lives.
