In bitterness of soul Hannah wept much and prayed to the LORD. And she made a vow, saying, "O LORD Almighty, if you will only look upon your servant's misery and remember me, and not forget your servant but give her a son, then I will give him to the LORD for all the days of his life, and no razor will ever be used on his head." (1 Samuel 1:9-11)
I think that many of us can relate to Hannah's prayer. Often we come to God bitter and crying.. sometimes in our desperation we begin to bargain with the Lord. What is amazing about this story is that God condescended and answered her prayer for a son. So today maybe is a day that we can each interact with God in a real and meaningful way.
Father we come to you today stripping away the facade that often hinders our prayers and ask you to come and answer those prayers that we have asked for so long. Like Hannah we have so longed for you to come and answer. We are desperate for you to appear dear Lord. Come Holy Spirit.
