As we celebrate this festival of Jesus’ entry into heaven as Saviour and Lord, we pray for unity in the Church and reconciliation and renewed vision.
As we recall the shout of praise in heaven as the Lamb of God appears, we pray for all who are hailed as heroes and given great honour on earth; for all who worship anyone or anything other than the true God.
We pray for all farewells and homecomings among our families and in our community, and for all who have lost touch with loved ones and long for reunion.
We pray for those who are full of tears, and cannot imagine being happy again; we pray for the hardened and callous, whose inner hurts have never yet been healed. We pray for wholeness and comfort and new life.
We commend to the Father’s eternal love those we remember who have died, and we pray too for those who miss their physical presence.
