Holy Spirit, please help us keep all our appointments with Jesus. Don’t let us miss any of the times he wants to meet with us. Thank you.
When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. (Matthew 28:17)
Jesus, please help us worship you even when we have doubts. Help us come into your presence and see you.
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth.” (Matthew 28:18 )
Father, please help us live under the authority you have given Jesus — help us to be his true and faithful disciples.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” (Matthew 28:19)
Jesus, help us go forth at your bidding and make disciples of those we meet. Help us to be disciples who make disciples.
“teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. (Matthew 28:20)

Jesus, thank you for pouring out your Holy Spirit on us so that you are always with us.
Holy Spirit, please help us observe all that Jesus commands us. Thank you.
