The Ascension of Jesus
Exactly 40 days after Resurrection, Jesus departed from Earth and rose into Heaven in the presence of His apostles. Ever since, Ascension Day is celebrated on Thursday, 40 days after Easter Sunday.
On Ascension Day, the hearts and eyes of Christians from around the world are focused on a specific point. To the East of the old city of Jerusalem, in the heart of the Holy Land, stands the ancient Mount of Olives, the exact location of the Ascension of Jesus.
Ascension Day Delegation to the Holy Ascension Site
This year, when travel is limited and pilgrimage is almost impossible, the Salvation Garden team plans a special prayer on top of the Mount of Olives on Ascension Day, Thursday, May 13th, 2021. We invite the members of our prayer community to participate in this unique prayer opportunity.
Unfortunately, the Mount of Olives is located in a disputed area, where Israelis and Palestinians had clashed in the past and there is a security challenge. Nevertheless, we plan the delegation to the Mount of Olives on Ascension Thursday and we will take the necessary security measures.
Prayer Request for Ascension Day
To place your personal prayer request, which we will pray for you on the site of Ascension on Ascension Day, please click here.
There, after writing your prayer request and selecting at least one Holy Land church, click “Continue” and then, select the Ascension Day option to be added.
To help with the travel costs, and especially the security measures, we collect donations and we thank you in advance for your generosity. Last year, in the months of 2020 and with Covid-19 related restrictions, the costs were higher than donations, but we were able to close the year and move forward. Again, thank you for any donation, big or small.
