Hannah's Prayer




Hannah, the barren wife of Elkanah,
was a woman of remarkable faith,
who asked the Lord for a son.
And the Lord answered her prayer.


"Hannah became pregnant and in due time
she bore a son and named him Samuel,
(heard of God)
Because, she said,
I have asked him of the Lord."
1 Samuel 1:20



When Samuel was about
three years old, his mother
took him to the temple
in Shiloh and dedicated
the child to the Lord's service.

A Matter Of Faith...

 




Hannah's Prayer
"My heart exults and triumphs in the Lord,
my horn (my strength) is lifted up in the Lord.
My mouth is no longer silent,
for it is opened wide over my enemies,
because I rejoice in
Your salvation.

There is none holy like the Lord,
there is none besides You;
there is no Rock
like our God.

Talk no more so very proudly;
let not arrogance go forth from your mouth,
for the Lord is a God of knowledge,
and by Him actions are weighed.

The bows of the mighty are broken,
and those who stumbled are
girded with strength.

Those who were full
have hired themselves out for bread,
but those who were hungry
have ceased to hunger.
The barren has borne seven,
but she who has many children
languishes and is forlorn.

The Lord slays and makes alive;
He brings down to Sheol
and raises up.

The Lord makes poor and makes rich;
He brings low and He lifts up.

He raises up the poor and makes rich;
He brings low and He lifts up.

He raises up the poor out of the dust
and lifts up the needy from the ash heap,
to make them sit with nobles
and inherit the throne of glory.
For the pillars of the earth are the Lord's,
and He has set the world upon them.

He will guard the feet of His godly ones,
but the wicked shall be silenced
and perish in the darkness;
for by strength shall no man prevail.

The adversaries of the Lord
shall be broken to pieces;
against them will He thunder in heaven.
The Lord will judge all peoples
to the ends of the earth;
and He will give strength to
His King and exalt the power
of His Anointed.
