Ascension Day

Prayers of the Faithful. Ascension of the Lord.


Let us pray to God the Father, through Jesus Christ his son, who was taken up to heaven and intercedes for us at His right hand.


For Pope Benedict, our Bishop N.
May the Lord bless them and guide them in their work. 
(pause) Lord in your mercy

As we celebrate the feast of the Ascension of Our Lord Jesus let it inspire in us feelings of joy and hope.
(pause) Lord in your mercy

Let us pray for God's help to recognise the risen Christ in the face of someone we meet today.
(pause) Lord in your mercy

Let us pray for all people, so that all people can recognise Christ in one another as they encounter them every day, however stressed and tired. (pause) Lord in your mercy

Let us pray (for N and) for all who have died; especially those who encouraged us in our faith by their example. As we pray for them, may they in turn continue to pray for us that we may stay true to our faith and give example ourselves to others. (pause) Lord in your mercy

Let us pray through the intercession of Mary as we say: Hail Mary…

In silent prayer we now remember our personal intentions.


Loving Father, we ask you to listen to all our prayers, which we make them in faith in your Son, Jesus, who is Lord for ever and ever. Amen
