[If you have a printed Bible available, I recommend you read the passages directly from it. It’s a great way to teach our children to treasure it.]
Luke 1:46-50 (you can read up until verse 55)
“And Mary said:
My soul praises the greatness of the Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
because he has looked with favor
on the humble condition of his servant.
Surely, from now on all generations
will call me blessed,
because the Mighty One
has done great things for me,
and his name is holy.
His mercy is from generation to generation
on those who fear him…'”
Father, give me a heart like Mary’s that praises you for your good plans for our lives. In Jesus’ name, amen.
