praying with mary

O God,

We pause, in anticipation of some gift that you want to give to us.

We give thanks for gifts of food and friendship, for gifts of service and song, for gifts of community and compassion.

As we pause, we remember Mary, her faith, her trust.

Let us, with Mary, rejoice in You.

Let us, with Mary, acknowledge your greatness.

Let us, with Mary, remember your mercy from generation to generation.

Let us, with Mary, confess that you fill the hungry with good things.

Let us, with Mary, be open to a new birth.

And let us, with Mary, in this busy season, pause to ponder all that this means.

And then let us return to the activities before us, glorifying and praising you for all that we have received. .

In the name of Jesus Christ, your greatest gift to the world, our Savior.
