    What does Mary pause to sing praise about at this joyous and unexpected greeting from Elizabeth, who miraculously already knows Mary’s secret? What was it about God’s character that she found so meaningful, encouraging and worthy of praise?

    In this month’s TWR Women of Hope Prayer Calendar, we are praying for women in ministry.
