Ascension of our Lord

Ascension Almighty God, your blessed Son, our Savior Jesus Christ, ascended far above all heavens that he might fill all things.  Mercifully give us faith to trust that, as he promised, he abides with us on earth to the end of time, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
Amen.

    Thanks for the prayer; I’m the intercessor at the worship service tonight.
    Forgive me my ignorance of icons, but what’s Mary doing in the middle?
