Prayer Request

Luke 1:11-17
While Zechariah was in the sanctuary, an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing to the right of the incense altar. Zechariah was shaken and overwhelmed with fear when he saw him. But the angel said, “Don’t be afraid, Zechariah! God has heard your prayer. Your wife, Elizabeth, will give you a son, and you are to name him John. You will have great joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth, for he will be great in the eyes of the Lord. He must never touch wine or other alcoholic drinks. He will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even before his birth. And he will turn many Israelites to the Lord their God. He will be a man with the spirit and power of Elijah. He will prepare the people for the coming of the Lord. He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and he will cause those who are rebellious to accept the wisdom of the godly.”

Miracle after miracle! An angel of the Lord appears to Zechariah. A child will be born to a barren Elizabeth. The child (John the Baptist) will come in the spirit and power of Elijah, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit before he is born. Many of the children of Israel will listen to him and turn to the Lord their God. The word miracle is defined as, "such an effect or event manifesting or considered as a work of God". The promise of John the Baptist is laden with the miraculous work of God...and God is just getting started with this generation.
