A Morning Cup of Tea: A Prophet is born

Good morning! It's almost noon time here though. Today we are finishing up chapter one of Luke, beginning in verse 57.
  Elisabeth gave birth to a son, and everyone rejoiced. On the eighth day the child was circumcised and the neighbors and cousins took it upon themselves to name him Zacharias, after his father. Elisabeth said no, his name is John. Not so, said the others. No one in the family is named John! So they asked Zacharias what the child's name is. He asked for a writing tablet and he wrote, his name is John. At that point Zacharias could speak again! And speak he did! The holy spirit came upon him and he began to prophesy, praising God and foretelling that John would be a prophet who prepared the people for the Lord.
