Prayer: We praise You, Lord!

(A prayer-paraphrase of Mary’s Magnificat, Luke 1:46-55.)

We praise you, Lord,
and our spirits rejoice in you – our Saviour;

For you take notice of the unnoticeable,
and transform them into the blessed;
You are strong and true to yourself and all that is good
in everything you are and do and say;
and you do great things for us;

Through the ages you have shown compassion
to those who trust you,
And in your strength you have scattered
those who are arrogant and abusive;

You have made the thrones of tyrants topple
and you have made humble people into leaders of many;
You have cared for and provided for those who have nothing,
and you have left the over-satisfied with empty hands;

You have always been a help to your people,
and have shown mercy when we have gone astray;
You made this promise to our ancestors,
and you continue to stay true to it even now.

We praise you, Lord,
and our spirits rejoice in you – our Saviour.
Amen.
