Ascension of the Lord

Shouts of Joy
God of majesty,
you raised Jesus to life after suffering death on the cross,
and seated him in glory at your right hand.
Confirm within your Church the gift of faith and may the mystery of the Ascension give us hope in the coming of Christ
whose reign establishes justice and peace.
Send your Holy Spirit upon us and enliven us to share the Gospel.
Break open our hearts with your Word and give us strength and wisdom to build up your Kingdom.
Open our eyes to see your glory all around us,
so that with shouts of joy we forever sing your praises.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Fifth Sunday of Easter

In the Vineyard
God, the giver of joy,
in Baptism you join us to Christ,
the true Vine,
and, through your Word,
we are sustained in holiness
and wisdom.
Send your Holy Spirit upon
your vineyard
so that, each branch may thrive
and reveal your glory by yielding love
and joy.
Sustain the Church in holiness
and help it bear much fruit for
your kingdom.
When our parched hearts begin
to wither,
draw us close to you and nurture us
with your grace.
And on that final day, may we be found
praising your holy name
in the assembly of your people.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Fourth Sunday of Ester

The Cornerstone
Almighty and ever-living God,
you reveal your great love for us in your
Son, Jesus.
By his dying and rising,
we have been made your children
and so, we lift our voices to give thanks
for your goodness.
May Christ the cornerstone,
provide us with the strength
and courage
to build up your Kingdom.
Grant us a faith and love
that moves us to lay aside our desires
in order to work for justice.
Implant your will deep within
our hearts
so that, we offer all that we are to you
and for your glory.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

3rd Sunday of Easter

Glory
God of our fathers,
by raising Jesus from the dead,
you have glorified your Son and author
of life.
We offer you thanks and praise
for your countenance shining upon us
with this great gift of love.
Like the Apostles in the Upper Room,
give us your peace as we stand in
amazement of your glory.
With hearts transformed,
urge us to go forth preaching Jesus’
Holy Name
and bear witness to his healing love
and peace.
Bind up our wounds
so that, bearing the marks of the cross,
we may be found strong in faith,
persevering in hope, and filled with the
fire of your love.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
