The Life and Times of Samuel – February 25, 2024

“The Birth of Samuel (The Story of Hannah)”

1 Samuel 1:1-20

This week, we begin our series on the life and times of the prophet Samuel.

Today, I want to start off with a question: What is the most mysterious part of prayer? Is it the lack of answers or the deafening silence? Or maybe it seems like God says yes to some people but then he says no to others?

We find prayer to be really mysterious. So my big question today is: What is the kind of prayer that God honors?

That’s what our Bible story is about today. Our Bible passage comes from 1 Samuel 1:1-20. It’s a longer story, but it’s a good one.

Our passage today tells us that God honors us when we:

  1. Bring ourselves as we are
  2. When we trust what He has said
