01.22.20124 Psalm 139:13-16 (ESV) 13 For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb.
01.22.20125 Psalm 139:13-16 (ESV) 14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
01.22.20126 Psalm 139:13-16 (ESV) 15 My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
01.22.20127 Psalm 139:13-16 (ESV) 16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
01.22.20128 Genesis 1:26 (ESV) 26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
01.22.20129 Jeremiah 1:4-5 (ESV) 4 Now the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
01.22.201210 Jeremiah 1:4-5 (ESV) 5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
01.22.201211 Luke 1:13-15 (ESV) 13 But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zechariah, for your prayer has been heard, and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John.
01.22.201212 Luke 1:13-15 (ESV) 14 And you will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth,
01.22.201213 Luke 1:13-15 (ESV) 15 for he will be great before the Lord. And he must not drink wine or strong drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb.
01.22.201214 Luke 1:35-37 (ESV) 35 And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy—the Son of God.
01.22.201215 Luke 1:35-37 (ESV) 36 And behold, your relative Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son, and this is the sixth month with her who was called barren.
01.22.201216 Luke 1:35-37 (ESV) 37 For nothing will be impossible with God.”
01.22.201217 Luke 1:39-44 (ESV) 39 In those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country, to a town in Judah,
01.22.201218 Luke 1:39-44 (ESV) 40 and she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth.
01.22.201219 Luke 1:39-44 (ESV) 41 And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the baby leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit,
01.22.201220 Luke 1:39-44 (ESV) 42 and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!
01.22.201221 Luke 1:39-44 (ESV) 43 And why is this granted to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
01.22.201222 Luke 1:39-44 (ESV) 44 For behold, when the sound of your greeting came to my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy.
