A Mother's Prayer
|Luke 1 (NKJV™)|
|39||Now Mary arose in those days and went into the hill country with haste, to a city of Judah,|
|40||and entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth.|
|41||And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.|
|42||Then she spoke out with a loud voice and said, "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!|
|43||"But why is this granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?|
|44||"For indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.|
|45||"Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord."|
|46||And Mary said: "My soul magnifies the Lord,|
|47||And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.|
|48||For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant; For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed.|
|49||For He who is mighty has done great things for me, And holy is His name.|
|50||And His mercy is on those who fear Him From generation to generation.|
|51||He has shown strength with His arm; He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.|
|52||He has put down the mighty from their thrones, And exalted the lowly.|
|53||He has filled the hungry with good things, And the rich He has sent away empty.|
|54||He has helped His servant Israel, In remembrance of His mercy,|
|55||As He spoke to our fathers, To Abraham and to his seed forever."|
|56||And Mary remained with her about three months, and returned to her house.|
