A prayer for Ascension Day

The Book of Common Prayer includes the following prayer for Ascension Day. I found it very beautiful, and thought some of us might want to join in praying it.

O Almightly God, whose blessed Son our Savior Jesus Christ ascended far above all heavens that he might fill all things: Mercifully give us faith to perceive that, according to his promise, he abideth with his Church on earth, even unto the end of the ages; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everalsting. Amen.

Best wishes,
Mason Smith
