Hannah made it very clear that her first born son was an answer to prayer. The name she gave him – Samuel – meant “asked of God” or “heard by God.” She also kept her vow to give him back to the Lord in service at the Tabernacle where she praised God with joy! How beautiful it is when our gratitude towards the Lord leads us to sacrificial worship similar to Hannah’s!
Questions for further thought:
1. When God answers your prayers, how do you respond?
2. Do you thank God publicly for his blessings? Why or why not?
Challenge: Remember to share your thankfulness and praise with others so that all the glory goes to God. He deserves the highest place in our hearts and lives!
