Time: 9:23 AM

Weather: Looks sunny from my window!

Readings: 1 Samuel, chapters 1-5

Noteworthy Verse:

“Eli answered her, ‘Go in peace.  And may the God of Israel give you what you have asked of him.’ ”

1 Samuel 1:17

Significance:

  • In this verse Hannah had been pouring out her heart to God in prayer.  At the time she was barren and was requesting a son; vowing to dedicate her future son to the Lord.  After witnessing her prayer, Eli blessed her and sent her on her way.
  • Within the year, Hannah gave birth to Samuel and dedicated him to the Lord.  She then went on to have three more sons and two daughters.
  • This verse is an example of the power of prayer.  God listens to prayers and he answers those that  want to serve and honor him.  He may not answer prayers on your schedule, but he will answer them.

Feelings:
I’m feeling rested, ready to start the day, and excited to spend the rest of the week living for God.
