93. Prayer on the Day of the Ascension (Evangelical Lutheran Prayer Treasury)


Jesus Christ, Son of the Almighty God!  You no longer dwell among us on earth, poor and wretched, but You have ascended to the right hand of Your Father as Lord over all.  We pray:  Send us Your Holy Spirit.   Give us devout servants of the Church who hold fast to Your Word.  Fight Satan and all earthly tyrants, and mightily preserve Your Kingdom on earth, until all Your foes lie beneath Your feet, and we triumph through You over sin, death, and all things.  Amen.

(Johannes Eichorn)

from Evangelische-Lutherischer Gebets-Schatz, Concordia Publishing House, 1888.
