Before Service Prayer: O Lord, our heavenly Father, almighty and everlasting God, You have brought us safely to this new day. Defend us with Your mighty power, and grant that this day we neither fall into sin nor run into any kind of danger; and in all we do, direct us to what is right in Your sight, through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord. Amen.

Today's Theme CHRIST'S ASCENSION MEANS HE IS CLOSER THAN EVER: Conventional wisdom would say if Christ has ascended into heaven, He is further away from His followers than when He was visibly on earth. The resurrection reality is that it is the other way around. Now that Christ has ascended, He is closer than ever. The living and ascended Savior has reassumed full use of all His divine power. So if you need Christ's help, you don't need to hunt for Him in Galilee. You call to Him in prayer, wherever you are, whenever you want, and He hears and acts. You want to hear Jesus speak? You don't need to chase Him down. Open His Word and listen to His powerful, life-giving voice.

The ascension marks the completion of Jesus0' earthly mission, but it does not signify the end of His work. Christ ascended to exercise His limitless authority for the Church as we carry out our mission to be Christ's ambassadors of grace to the world. Therefore, the Festival of the Ascension is one of the oldest and most joyful celebrations in the Christian Church. It will be observed by Christians until Christ returns to take us to be with Him.
