Zacharias and Elizabeth

O God, who alone knits all infants in the womb, You chose improbable servants—old  and childless— to conceive and parent the forerunner of Christ and, in so doing, demonstrated again Your strength in weakness. Grant us, who are as unlikely and unworthy as Zecharias and Elizabeth, the opportunity to love and serve You according to Your good and gracious will; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, now ad forever. Amen.
