        GRACIOUS GOD, THIS WEEK AS CHRISTIANS CELEBRATE THE LIFE OF MARY, THE MOTHER OF JESUS, WE PRAY LIKE -- BY LISTENING TO MARY'S SONG. OPEN OUR HEARTS TO MAGNIFY YOUR GLORY AND GRACE, O GOD. OPEN THE EYES OF OFFICIALS TO SEE PEOPLE WHO LIVE UNDER POVERTY AND OPPRESSION, LIFT UP PEOPLE WHO ARE LOWLY AND TAKE DOWN OFFICIALS WHO ARE ARROGANT. FEED BOTH THE WEALTHY AND THE IMPOVERISHED WITH YOUR JUSTICE AND YOUR MERCY. AS YOU HAVE SAVED OUR ANCESTORS AND AS YOU HAVE PROMISED TO DO SO FOR OUR DESCENDENTS, GIVE TODAY'S LEADERS THE SAME JOY, WISDOM, COURAGE, AND TRUST THAT YOU GAVE TO YOUR SERVANT, MARY, THE BEARER OF YOUR HOLY WORD, JESUS CHRIST. AMEN.
