Judges 13:2-7,24-25, Psalm 71, Luke 1:5-25

God’s gift

The miracle of a child. In both readings God/Jehovah heard the prayers of childless women. Their infertility had been their humiliation. So their joy is overwhelming when they each conceive sons. Think of the extraordinary efforts that today’s women make to get pregnant. All the riches of the modern world do not measure up to one child. We would pray always for those who wish for children, and for those who are tempted to abortion.
