Ascension Thursday falls this year on May 21st.
Grant, we pray, almighty God,
that as we believe your only-begotten Son our Lord Jesus Christ
to have ascended into the heavens,
so we in heart and mind may also ascend
and with him continually dwell;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.

God our Father
you have raised our humanity in Christ
and have fed us with the bread of heaven;
mercifully grant that, nourished with such spiritual blessings,
we may set our hearts in heavenly places;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
