Spring Women’s Challenge 2021 “Telling Your Story” Pray Like Hannah

Day 10

Today is day 10 of our Spring Women’s Challenge 2021.”Telling your Story” Today our devotion is about praying like Hannah.

Our verse is I Samuel 2:1And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoiceth in the LORD, mine horn is exalted in the LORD: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation. 

I Samuel 2:1-10 Hannah’s heart rejoiced in prayer and,  not in Samuel, but in the Lord. She looks beyond the gift, and praises to the one who gives our blessings. Hannah rejoiced in the salvation of the Lord, and in the expectation of His coming. This is the purpose whole salvation of his people. The strong are soon weakened, and the weak are soon strengthened, when God pleases. Are we poor? God made us poor, which is a good reason why we should be content, and make up our minds to our condition. Are we rich? God made us rich, which is a good reason why we should be thankful, and serve him cheerfully, and do good with the abundance he gives us. He respects not man’s wisdom or fancied excellence, but chooses those whom the world accounts foolish,but God is  teaching us that we are his children and to value his free and precious salvation. This prophecy of Hannah looks to the kingdom of Christ, that kingdom of grace, of which Hannah speaks. The subjects of Christ’s kingdom will be safe, and the enemies of it will be ruined; for the Anointed, the Lord Christ, is able to save, and to destroy. God hears our prayers and He is taking care of us until He returns and takes us home with him.

I love this quote from Ed Bauseman. I read it on the faithfulpreaching.com website. Be praying because the buzzards are flying! “The lesson of Jesus on the buzzards flying is clear. Whenever this world becomes as morally rotten, putrefied, and stinking, as it was in the days of Noah, Lot, and Lot’s wife, that condition will draw the Judgment of God.

At such a time as this just look up, and by the eye of faith you can see the buzzards making lazy circles in the sky over the rotting carcass of humanity. How long can God endure the stench, the foul odor of a drug-infested, sports-crazed, sexually-perverted, and violent, pleasure-mad world? It is in days like these that Jesus referred when He said, ‘When the Son of Man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?’ “

Are you praying and ever faithful? Do you have the faith to pray like Hannah? God stills answers the prayers of his people. Pray with thanksgiving and praise.
