Holy Spirit, prepare our hearts for the coming days. Release the peace of the saving knowledge of God. Brighten our beacon of hope. May we look up in expectation of help, for our help comes from your holy hill. May we stand firm in our faith, leaning fully on your promises. May we praise Mighty God, Adonai, Sabaoth. May we give thanks for his favor and blessing. May we rejoice for each new day he gives. I thank you in the name and authority of Jesus, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven.” (Acts 1:11b ESV)
