Mary's Prophetic Song

In Luke 1 there are two powerful prayers that burst forth in song. The first is from a young mother who is visited by an angel who tells her that, although a virgin, she is about to be pregnant with the Son of God. The second is a priest, serving in the Temple, when an angel tells him he will have a child in his old age. The two of them sing praises to God for the goodness he has shown them, but also for the great expectations they have for God's Kingdom because of their two baby boys.
