Dear God, with deep gratitude we thank you for those who guard, guide and serve our nation. Thank you for those who gave the last full measure of devotion by sacrificing their lives to secure and safeguard our liberties. Bless their memory, as well as their family, friends and community who now enjoy the freedom for which they died. This we pray in the name of Jesus, even as we plead for peace and justice in our time. Amen.

Holy One, you do not distance yourself from the pain of your people, but in Jesus you bear that pain with all who suffer at others’ hands. With your cleansing love, bring healing and strength to those who have been affected by gun violence, and by your justice, lift them up, that in body, mind, and spirit, they may again rejoice. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Today we celebrate the Ascension of our Lord.
"Then [Jesus] led [his disciples] out as far as Bethany, and, lifting up his hands, he blessed them. While he was blessing them, he withdrew from them and was carried up into heaven. And they worshiped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy; and they were continually in the temple blessing God" (Luke 24:50-53).

A prayer of Julian of Norwich, an English Christian theologian and mystic at the turn of the 14th century who we commemorate this day:
“In you, Father all-mighty, we have our preservation and our bliss. In you, Christ, we have our restoring and our saving. You are our mother, brother, and savior. In you, our Lord the Holy Spirit, is marvelous and plenteous grace. You are our clothing; for love you wrap us and embrace us. You are our maker, our lover, our keeper. Teach us to believe that by your grace all shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well. Amen.”

The Southeastern Minnesota Synod Assembly takes place online tomorrow, May 8th. Consider being a part of this year's offering by checking out the link below. And please pray for our first ever virtual assembly to go well! Pastor Katelyn and congregational delegates Allan & Cindy will be attending.

You're invited to be part of the 2021 Synod Assembly Offering! Your financial generosity will support the synod’s ministry partners and launch the new Holy Spirit fund!

Visit http://semnsynod.org/giving, select the “Give Now” button, and pick “Synod Assembly Offering” as the fund. If a check is more convenient, please mail it to the synod office at 1001 14th St NW, Rochester, MN 55901.
