prayer diary Wednesday 25 March 2015 The Annunciation of our Lord (Day of Discipline and Self-denial)

Mary said, ‘Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word.’ Then the angel departed from her. 
Luke 1. 38

Did God need Mary? No, for he might have chosen another way to bring about our salvation. But he did not so choose, and so we must give thanks for Mary's 'fiat,' her 'let it be with me according to your word;' for by her obedience did God's plan for our salvation begin.
