The Ascended Lord
May 24 Bulletin for home worship.
The Psalm: 68: 19-20, 35
19 Praised be the Lord daily, *
even the God who helps us and pours his benefits upon us.
20 He is our God, the God from whom salvation comes; *
God is the Lord, by whom we escape death.
35 Ascribe power to God over Israel; *
his worship and strength are in the clouds.
The LESSON: mark 16: 19-20
19 So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God. 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by accompanying signs.
O God, the King of glory, you have exalted your only Son Jesus Christ with great triumph to your kingdom in heaven: Do not leave us comfortless, but send us your Holy Spirit to strengthen us, and exalt us to that place where our Savior Christ has gone before; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.
