OPENING PRAYER
Gracious God, your servant Mary discovered new life growing within her and knew it to
be your promised presence. In tender reverence for the holy mystery of your
Incarnation, may we be as a womb for your blessed presence, ready to receive and
nourish your Word in our lives, open to the stirrings of your Spirit within us. May we
faithfully bear your love in the world, that by your grace Christ may be born in us.

OUR LORD’S PRAYER, IN UNISION
Our Father/Mother/Creator, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever. Amen.
