prayer for the week: in view of Christ's ascension

The Seventh Sunday in Easter, The Sunday after Ascension Day
O God, the King of glory, you have exalted your only Son Jesus Christ with great triumph to your kingdom in heaven: Do not leave us comfortless, but send us your Holy Spirit to strengthen us, and exalt us to that place where our Savior Christ has gone before; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.
from Book of Common Prayer

Amen. I wish Ascension Day, and the Sunday following would be bigger in all the church. It is a most important day!
