"“Zechariah , do not be afraid, for your prayer has been heard.”" Luke 1 : 13

Again the angel comes to bring good news. This time it is to Zechariah, whose turn it is to minister in the Temple. All down the years he and his wife have prayed for a son but now in their old age they are promised an answer to their prayers. Zechariah finds it hard to believe and because of this, even though he has good news he cannot share it verbally as he is struck dumb for his lack of faith in the angel’s words.

Prayer Lord help us realise our prayers are always heard. Let me not question your ways but instead give me great trust in your love. Open my heart to your ways in my daily life. Amen
