Scripture: Luke 1:39–48a (Today’s Readings)
Oh, my soul leaps with inexpressible joy.
Like a mother holding a newborn.
With great expectation, I wait for You.
You knew me before creation.
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
I believe, but cannot see.
Your promises are true.
You have chosen me.
A humble servant.
Prayer: Father God, with joy we praise You, for You have come to be with us, and You have called us as Your own. Guide us now, that we may love and serve You with all of our lives. Amen.
