God of all times and all places,
when you arrived in Christ Jesus
you began to bring heaven down to earth,
and when you departed
you began to draw earth up to heaven:
bless us so that we may continue to worship you joyfully in the power of the Holy Spirit,
inviting all the people of earth to become part of your heavenly kingdom.
From Common Prayer for Children and Families by Jenifer Gamber and Timothy J. S. Seamans
