A Collect for Mary’s Visitation to Elizabeth

Almighty God, high and lifted above all powers, look with favor on we who are low and humble, that like your servant, Mary, we might receive your favor and blessing and that we would be witness to great things that you will accomplish in our midst, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who humbled himself and was lifted up to sit at your right hand in the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has looked with favor on the lowliness of his servant. Surely, from now on all generations will call me blessed; for the Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name.”‘ – Luke 1:46-49
