You who seek God, your hearts shall live. Psalm 69:32 NKJV
Mary entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. Luke 1:40-41
Holy Spirit, gracious guest, you filled Elizabeth’s heart when she heard Mary’s greeting. We ask that you fill our hearts as we remember the birth of a baby boy—your son, our Lord—in whose name we pray. Amen.
