Almighty God, your Son our Savior was taken up in glory and intercedes for us at your right hand. Through your living and abiding Word, give us hearts to know him and faith to follow where he has gone; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen (sung)

Psalm of the Day
Psalm 8, page 67 in the front part of the hymnal
Although Jesus ascended, he does not leave us on our own. He continues to send the Spirit and to offer salvation full and free. We eagerly await his second and final coming when he will take us to himself in heaven. So we pray, “Come Lord Jesus.”
