In the early part of this week, our Seniors will be taking their final exams while our underclassmen will be reviewing, and studying all week for their upcoming year end exams. With this in mind, our prayer theme this week will be to ask for a clear mind and a determined spirit as we ready ourselves for a strong finish to what has proved to be a challenging year.
Today is Ascension Thursday, a day when we commemorate Jesus’ rising into
Heaven after He had spent forty days on Earth after His Resurrection.
We celebrate The Ascension forty days after Easter Sunday
Right before your Ascension into heaven you told your apostles to be
His witnesses to the ends of the earth upon receiving the Holy Spirit.
May we be similarly inspired to spread your Gospel message in word and deed,
according to your will for us. And may we do so prudently and joyfully,
with your help, your guidance, and your grace!
And remembering this glorious event,
help us to seek what is above, Heaven,
where you are seated at the right hand of God the Father!
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
