When the child was weaned, Hannah took him to the Tabernacle I am the woman who stood here several years ago praying to the Lord. I asked the Lord to give me this boy, and he has granted my request. Now I am giving him to the Lord, and he will belong to the Lord his whole life. -1 Samuel 1:24-28
The child was named Samuel who grew into one of the greatest of Old Testament prophets. Hannah prayed for many years for a child of her own – year after year of praying and waiting. God answered in His perfect time, and both He and the new mother were good to their word. Hannah and God had a long-term, trusting, relationship that extended into the life of her son and all those he influenced for generations.
A mother that prays can change the world. Our world is already changed by all the women in our fellowship and the mom’s of yesterday and today. Thank God for mothers that pray.
