O God of Elizabeth and Mary, you visited your servants with news of the world's redemption in the coming of the Savior. Make our hearts leap with joy,and fill our mouths with songs of praise,that we may announce glad tidings of peace,and welcome the Christ in our midst. Amen.
Brothers and sisters,as we joyfully await the glorious coming of the Christ, let us pray for the needs of the church, our community, and the world. God of promise, you have given us a sign of your love through the gift of Jesus Christ, our Savior, who was promised from ages past. We believe as Joseph did the message of your presence whispered by an angel, and offer our prayers for your world, confident of your care and mercy for all creation. Amen.
