Prayer of Week

Almighty Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, You have revealed the beauty of your power by exalting the lowly virgin of Nazareth and making her the mother of our Saviour. May the prayers of this woman bring Jesus to the waiting world and fill the void of incompletionwith the presence of her child, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit one God forever and ever. Amen.
