This week in the life of the church is a strange one. Last week we celebrated that Christ ascended into heaven. This coming Sunday we’ll celebrate the sending of the Spirit at Pentecost. Yet in between these two weeks, the people of God were left without God’s presence here on earth.
Below is a prayer for the church for the Sunday after Ascension Day. It is a beautiful prayer asking the Lord to never leave us without His comfort. It is a prayer that reminds us of the comfort of the Holy Spirit and causes us to pray for more and more of an experience of the Spirit in our lives.
I pray that this will encourage you as you Sit with Jesus this week.
