Easter Week Seven

& main, Year C.

Lord Jesus Christ,
You call us to come
To be with you,
To hear your voice
To listen deeply to your word.
By your Spirit help me
To see you,
To hear your voice,
To follow you in all of life,
In the way of God’s gracious reality.

Season of Easter, Week Seven

Our Father, Abba,
Hallowed be your name
Your kingdom come
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgives us our sins
As we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
(Help us to discern when evil is pulling us aside)
And deliver (rescue) us from evil.
For yours is the kingdom
The power and the glory

Season of Easter: Week Seven

THE LECTIONARY GUIDE leads us into listening as Jesus prays shortly before he is about to leave. Spend time listening in to Jesus’ prayer as he brings the desires of his heart before God. Reflect on how his desires lodge within the mind and soul and lives of the disciples as he ascends and returns to God his Father. How do these desires lodge within your heart and mind and life?
