Prayer 676

The prayer series

Jesus,

Mary, your mother, was brave.

When the angel said to her,
“You will conceive and give birth to a son,
and you are to call him Jesus.”

“How will this be,” Mary asked the angel,
“since I am a virgin?”

The angel answered,
“The Holy Spirit will come on you,
and the power of the Most High will overshadow you.
So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.”

(Luke 1:26-38)

Jesus,
your mom was brave.
And she was loyal to God.

She knew
if she conceived,
she would give birth without a husband.
She would lose her reputation.
Actually she might be stoned to death.
She might have to feed a child alone.
And both might have to live in hunger and thirst.

Perhaps she was worried
but because she believed in God,
she followed God’s will.

Jesus,
if an angel comes and tells me the same things,
what would I do?

If God wants me to conceive
and give birth without a husband,
what would I do?
Would I have Mary’s courage?

Jesus, I love you.
I put my life in your hands.
I trust in you.
Please make me brave.
I’ll go where you want me to go.

Amen.

PTH
