Hannah’s Prayer

Posted: March 25, 2010 in General, Todays Bible Reading

What a beautfull prayer! Hannah could not have children, and prayed and cried to God for a child. God answered her and she had a son, and called him Samuel, which means Heard of God.  This is Hannah’s prayer, after she had Samuel. I hope it means as much to you as o me.

1 Samuel 2
1HANNAH PRAYED, and said, 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.
2There is none holy like the Lord, there is none besides You; there is no Rock like our God.
3Talk 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.
4The bows of the mighty are broken, and those who stumbled are girded with strength.
5Those 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.
6The Lord slays and makes alive; He brings down to Sheol and raises up.
7The Lord makes poor and makes rich; He brings low and He lifts up.
8He 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.
9He will guard the feet of His godly ones, but the wicked shall be silenced and perish in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.
10The 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[a]His king (King) and exalt the power of His anointed (Anointed [b]His Christ).(A)
