I liked this 1st video a lot. It cracked me up because the animation is funny, but it's also informative in a quick concise way for beginners. I will be posting some links to Bible verses, on the topic of John the Baptist & Baptism.
Feel free to join in and discuss and post info on the topic of baptism.
Mary (Jesus' Mother) and Elizabeth (John's Mother) were cousins and pregnant at the same time.
Luke 1:36 “And, behold, thy cousin Elizabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren”
When Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, John leaped in her womb
Luke 1:39 Now Mary arose in those days and went into the hill country with haste, to a city of Judah, 40and entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth. 41And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 42Then she spoke out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! 43But why is this granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44For indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. 45Blessed is she who [h]believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.”
Luke 1:57-66 57When it was time for Elizabeth to have her baby, she gave birth to a son. 58Her neighbors and relatives heard that the LORD had shown her great mercy, and they shared her joy. 59On the eighth day they came to circumcise the child, and they were going to name him after his father Zechariah, 60but his mother spoke up and said, "No! He is to be called John." 61They said to her, "There is no one among your relatives who has that name." 62Then they made signs to his father, to find out what he would like to name the child. 63He asked for a writing tablet, and to everyone's astonishment he wrote, "His name is John." 64Immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue set free, and he began to speak, praising God. 65All the neighbors were filled with awe, and throughout the hill country of Judea people were talking about all these things. 66Everyone who heard this wondered about it, asking, "What then is this child going to be?" For the LORD's hand was with him.

Anna: The Prayer request section has been moved. It is no longer included with the Praise section. I've been wanting to do that for a long time. I'm such a procrastinator. It's why we can't have nice things.
