Almighty God,
by whose grace Elizabeth rejoiced with Mary
and greeted her as the mother of the Lord;

and rejoice to acclaim her Son our Saviour,
who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Mighty God,
by whose grace Elizabeth rejoiced with Mary
and greeted her as the mother of the Lord:

one God, now and for ever.

Post Communion Prayer

Gracious God,
who gave joy to Elizabeth and Mary
as they recognised the signs of redemption at work within them:
Help us, who have shared in the joy of this eucharist,
to know the Lord deep within us
and his love shining out in our lives,
that the world may rejoice in your salvation;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
