Today, Jesus, we are faced with a wonderful truth to proclaim,

but also, an awesome and uncomfortable responsibility.

We praise you and celebrate you as Ascended Lord;

we recognise that you have authority over all things,

but we live in a world where greed and power and violence

And so, as you call us, we pray:

Come as Lord, Jesus, and set the world to rights.

 

We praise you and celebrate you as the Way, Truth & Life;

we recognise that in you our life is made whole and full;

but we live in a world where death, brokenness and need

appear to be everywhere.

And so, as you call us, we pray:

Come as Lord, Jesus, and set the world to rights.

 

We praise you and celebrate you as God among us;

we receive your invitation to live God’s dream;

but we live in a world where dreams and hearts

are broken daily, and hope seems all but lost.

And so, as you call us, we pray:

Come as Lord, Jesus, and set the world to rights.

And we pray as you taught us: Our Father…
