Jesus, I honor You on the feast of Your Ascension into heaven.
I rejoice with all my heart at the glory
into which You entered to reign as King of heaven and earth.
When the struggle of this life is over,
give me the grace to share Your joy
and triumph in heaven for all eternity.
I believe that You entered into Your glorious Kingdom
to prepare a place for me,
for You promised to come again to take me to Yourself.
Grant that I may seek only the joys of Your friendship and love,
so that I may deserve to be united with You in heaven.
In the hour of my own homecoming,
when I appear before Your Father to give an account of my life on earth,
have mercy on me.
Jesus, in Your love for me
You have brought me from evil to good and from misery to happiness.
Give me the grace to rise above my human weakness.
May Your Humanity give me courage in my weakness
and free me from my sins.
Through Your grace,
give me the courage of perseverance
for You have called and justified me by faith.
May I hold fast to the life You have given me
and come to the eternal gifts You promised.
You love me, dear Jesus.
Help me to love You in return.
I ask You to grant this special favor:
(State your intention here…)
By Your unceasing care,
guide my steps toward the life of glory
You have prepared for those who love You.
Make me grow in holiness
and thank You by a life of faithful service.
