Prayer

 

“Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!”   Luke 1:45

 

Dear Lord, we ask that your Spirit would fill us with your hope as we live through this time of waiting.  Help us when we are discouraged by world events.  Fill us with Mary’s belief that you will accomplish all that you have promised, and encourage those who are without hope at this time.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
