The entire family got up early the next morning and went to worship the Lord once more. Then they returned home to Ramah. When Elkanah slept with Hannah, the Lord remembered her plea, and in due time she gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel, for she said, “I asked the Lord for him.” (1 Samuel 1:19-21)
This is a follow-up to yesterday's post about Hannah's prayer. It love it when I read that the Lord remembered Hannah and her prayer. So often we feel that our prayers are forgotten.. and often we feel forgotten. In times like these we need to take comfort knowing that we are not forgotten. Hannah prayed for a long time but in His time God remembered Hannah and answered her prayer.
Father we confess that we are so often clueless when it comes to your timing. Help us to remember Hannah and the many others who's prayers were answered in your timing. And until your answer comes we will continue to offer praise to your name.
