How does Mary address God (1:46-55)? List some things she praises Him for. What does she say about her own needs or concerns in her prayer? What can you take from Mary to use in your personal worship and prayer?

None of the things that were happening to Mary were part of her plans, yet she submitted to God joyfully even though the situation had to be scary. That amazes me.
So what can we do to get our hearts and attitudes more like Mary's today? How can we use and draw on Mary's song and example to help us let go of our plans so we can joyfully proceed with what the Lord has for us? Tami W.
