This Morning’s Intercessions spoke to me greatly, as we ask God to send us the Spirit as we continue to meditate on the Ascension.

Christ ascended into heaven to send the Holy Spirit on the apostles. Let us join with one voice in praising him, and say:

Send us your Spirit.

Lord Jesus, you ascended into heaven; send us the promise of the Father,

– that we may be clothed with power from on high.

Send us your Spirit.

Your disciples were to be as wise as serpents and as simple as doves,

– through your Spirit teach us prudence and simplicity.

Send us your Spirit.

You are seated at the right hand of the Father; pray for us as our Priest,

– and pray in us as our Head.

Send us your Spirit.

Grant that in every trial we may suffer with  you,

– and so be glorified with you.

Send us your Spirit.

And for what else shall we pray?

Add your prayers here and I will pray them with you.
